Atlanta Ballet Presents ‘Camino Real’
Atlanta Ballet performs the world premiere ballet based on the 1953 Tennessee Williams classic play “Camino Real.” The story is told from the perspective of Kilroy, a character based on patriotic iconography from the WWII era. The work grapples with human mortality, the burning desire to connect, and the will to live. Atlanta Ballet commissioned a brand new score for this full-evening ballet, which will be performed live by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra.
Friday evening there will be a pre-show party at 6:30 p.m. in the Grand Tier Lounge of the Cobb Energy Centre, featuring a complimentary cocktail, an appearance by company dancer Kiara Felder and prize giveaways.
Choreographed by Atlanta Ballet choreographer in residence Helen Pickett, “Camino Real” runs Friday through Sunday at 8 p.m. March 20-21, and 2 p.m. March 21-March 22. at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre at 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 404-892-3303. Tickets: 23-$124. www.atlantaballet.com.
