Atlanta Ballet Orchestra returns for 2008-09 season

The Atlanta Ballet announced yesterday that a live orchestra will accompany a selection of its 2008-09 performances. The ballet made the switch to digital music in 2006 to save money. According to the press release:

Swan Lake, the October season opener, February’s Dracula, a favorite of Atlanta audiences, and the May world premier of John McFall’s Don Quixote will feature live music at every performance. Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker will feature the orchestra during its opening weekend, December 5th, 6th and 7th.

Dan Allcott, music director and principal conductor for the Atlanta Ballet from 2000-2006, returns for the current season. Check out the Atlanta Ballet's website for more.
