In February, audiences will finally have the opportunity to enjoy Yuri Possokhov’s sensational Firebird, performed live with the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra.
Visually and musically arresting, Firebird is an explosive production that can be enjoyed by all ages. In addition to Possokhov’s energetic version of the Russian classic, the February program will feature a world premiere from Atlanta Ballet Choreographer-in-Residence Claudia Schreier, whose two prior Atlanta Ballet creations, First Impulse (2019) and Pleiades Dances (2020), have wowed audiences and critics alike.
Two works created by Atlanta Ballet company dancers who choreographed for last season’s Silver Linings will round out the mixed bill. Darian Kane will elaborate on her initial concept of Dr. Rainbow’s Infinity Mirror to reveal a complete ballet, and following the debut of his piece, Touchline, Anderson Souza will choreograph his second world premiere on the Company, performed with live accompaniment by composer/musician Khari Joyner.
