Gwinnett Ballet Theatre spotlights works from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries with their 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 "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.

Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil_, _Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion_, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of _Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
