Featuring a world premiere work by Mariinsky's Maxim Petrov
An exciting triple program is in the works for May 2018, closing out the first season under new artistic director Gennadi Nedvigin. This includes an Atlanta Ballet first, a world premiere co-production by Mariinsky Theatre's Maxim Petrov, as well as Balanchine's upbeat Gershwin tribute, Who Cares?, which celebrates the bright lights of Broadway to the sounds of no less than 13 of Gerswhin's classic standards. The third piece in the engagement is San Francisco Ballet's Helgi Tomasson's work, 7 for Eight, which features eight dancers performing to seven Bach movements.
Now under the stewardship of new artistic director Gennadi Nedvigin, Atlanta Ballet's repertory is undergoing some exciting changes, including the arrival of a new Nutcracker in the 2018/19 holiday season. A former principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet, Nedvigin's new lineup for the 2018 spring season includes two new mixed rep programs, an astonishing one month after the other!
