Atlanta Ballet announced the 2008-2009 season [pdf], which is looking pretty damn good. If only they still had the orchestra.
Dracula was pretty cool when I saw it a couple years ago. They do this great opening in pitch black, then the ghoulish red letters of the title project on the rippling stage curtains before they open on a dark, foggy, spiderwebby set. The dancing wasn’t as exciting, but it’s a cool spectacle. It’s a Valentine’s production this year.

I love the music for Swan Lake, which opens the season, and for The Firebird, which will be coupled with some kind of world premiere. Don Quixote is new to me as a ballet. Never heard the score.
