Atlanta Ballet will stage "Firebird" April 14-16. It's the first performance since the announcement that half the company's dancers are leaving.
This is the first season with Atlanta Ballet Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin. He has a new vision for the company, and, in "Firebird," it shows.
“I want to bring different styles of ballet to the city, to the company that would attract the largest audience possible,” he said.
Right now the company leans toward contemporary dance techniques. Nedvigin wants more variety.
