May 10-12, 2019 Director's Choice

  • Sum Stravinsky Choreography by Kiyon Gaines
  • Denouement Choreography by Gemma Bond
  • World Premiere Choreography by Liam Scarlett

To close out the season, Atlanta Ballet will present the Atlanta premiere of Sum Stravinsky by Kiyon Gaines, Ballet Arkansas Resident Choreographer and a retired Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist. It is an effervescent work that The Boston Globe says, “bubbles constantly with engaging movement and overlapping groupings.”

May will include the return of Denouement, an original work created on Atlanta Ballet for the 16|17 Season by American Ballet Theatre’s Gemma Bond. A transcendent work brought to life by piano and cello accompaniment on stage, Denouement explores the passage of time and how a different choice at a pivotal moment in our lives can set us on a trajectory that we never imagined.

Liam Scarlett, one of the biggest stars in ballet today and sought the world over, will also come back to Atlanta Ballet to create a new commission. The Company premiere of his ballet Vespertine in 2017 was an intoxicating and sensual powerhouse production that incited audible gasps of delight from the audience. Be among the first to witness the unveiling of his next creation, which is sure to become a tour de force, signature work for Atlanta Ballet.
