With Bach to Broadway, Atlanta Ballet closes its 2017/18 season with three works — including a world premiere — all accompanied by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra. Who Cares?, a company premiere with choreography by George Balanchine, is set to nine classic Gershwin tunes. The New York Times calls it “a carefree ballet that will … send people out … humming and even smiling.” In 7 for Eight, San Francisco Ballet's Helgi Tomasson evokes Balanchine with choreography that intertwines eight dancers with the music of seven Bach movements. The world premiere, Concerto Armonico by Mariinsky Theatre’s Maxim Petrov, is driven by a powerful musical score, a concerto composed by Russian-born Alexander Tcherepnin for harmonica and orchestra. Petrov makes his North American choreographic debut with this piece and Atlanta Ballet.
