What an incredible feat by our Atlanta Ballet company at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. Yes, the production is titled as Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird; but it is sooooo much more.
For Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin brings to the stage three world premieres each introduced by a video about the inspirations to connect the audience to the choreographers, Dr. Rainbow’s Infinity Mirror with the music by Miracle Musical and choreographed by Darian Kane brings down the first curtain.
Then the premiere of Inherited to the score composed by, and played by Khari Joyner brings down the house with another round of appreciative applause. The choreography and the scenic design both by Anderson Souza.
And if that isn’t enough candy for your eyes and ears, the third premiere is Fauna, choreographed by Claudia Schrier to music by Judith Weir, Paul Creston and Claude Debussy. Another full scale presentation.
But then they end up with the Firebird, choreographed by Yuri Possokhov to the score you know so well since your early years. The Atlanta Ballet Orchestra under the baton of Jonathan McPhee is live and full scale. Alas, the show closes on the 13th, but could be a wonderful Valentines gift for one you adore if you go grab up your tickets right away, at AtlantaBallet.com
