Gwinnett Ballet Theatre spotlights works from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries with its latest cutting-edge program, featuring a world premiere and a piece set to the music of famed composer Philip Glass. The show starts off with the classical "The Kingdom of the Shades," from Petipa's beloved 1877 La Bayadere. This ethereal work is famed for its romantic pas de deux of love and forgiveness, surrounded by a corps of angelic ballerinas. David Blumenfeld's contemporary dance to the work of Philip Glass follows, and for the exciting finale, GBT artistic director Wade Walthall teamed with young Atlanta visual artist Mac Stuart for Pictures, set to music from the 21st century and boasting innovative sets and costume design by the artist.

I attended "Stomp" last evening at the Fox Theatre and it was a fabulous event. There was so much talent on the stage and the fact that the performers engaged the audience was stellar.

STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments — matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps — to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms.*
