Atlanta Ballet will close the season on a high note with George Balanchine’s spirited Who Cares? set to 13 Gershwin classics. Teeming with the energy of the City that Never Sleeps and the glitz of Broadway, Who Cares? is “a carefree ballet that will… send people out… humming and even smiling” (The New York Times). Complementing Balanchine’s vibrant work, San Francisco Ballet Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson’s 7 for Eight evokes the Balanchine style with fluid, dramatic choreography that intertwines the 8 dancers with the sumptuous melodies of 7 Bach movements. Exploring the limits of classical movement in the contemporary world, the May program also includes the world premiere of Concerto Armonico by Mariinsky Theatre’s Maxim Petrov, who is making his North American choreographic debut with Atlanta Ballet.
