Michael Pink's Dracula Opens Atlanta Ballet's 75th-Anniversary Season

Classic Arts News   Michael Pink's Dracula Opens Atlanta Ballet's 75th-Anniversary Season
 
The Atlanta Ballet opens its 75th anniversary season tomorrow evening with Dracula, an adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic novel choreographed by Michael Pink with a score by Philip Feeney.

Feeney and Pink's Dracula was originally created for England's Northern Ballet Theatre, where it premiered in 1996.

The season, which runs through early May, includes versions of classic ballets such as Swan Lake and Cinderella; both The Nutcracker and a spoof called Nutty Nutcracker; and a program of new works, with a world premiere by British choreographer Christopher Hampson.

The company was founded in 1929 by Dorothy Alexander as the Dorothy Alexander Concert Group, which later became the Atlanta Civic Ballet and, in 1967, the Atlanta Ballet.
