WORLD PREMIERE! A Ballet Based on Camino Real by Tennesse Williams Choreography by Helen Pickett Music and sound by Peter Salem Costume Design by Sandra Woodall Lighting Design by David Finn Set Design by David Finn and Emma Kingsbury Live with the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra led by guest conductor Ari Pelto Kilroy is coming…For her fourth work andfirst full-evening ballet for Atlanta Ballet, Helen Pickett brings the world premiere of Camino Real. Inspired by the 1953 Tennessee Williams play of the same name, the story is told from the perspective of Kilroy, a character based on patriotic iconography from the WWII-era. The work grapples with human mortality, the burning desire to connect, and the will to live. Atlanta Ballet has commissioned a brand new score for this full-evening ballet, which will be performed live by the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra. Let yourself be pulled into a mind-twisting yet poignant program with Camino Real. ‘We can all look at these plays and recognize the things we do to ourselves. We cringe, we laugh, and we have that moment of recognition...’ – Helen Pickett in a January 2014 Creative Loafing article
