Violette Verdy is in love – with “the tenderness in the European character,” she says, “tenderness about life, food, children and the arts.” Verdy’s neoclassical piece, Inoui Rossini, meaning ‘Extraordinary’ and set to Rossini’s evocative music, draws upon this culture. “So much of my career has centered on teaching. I find my choreography seems naturally to be about educating dancers in what a disciplined body can suggest, and audiences in how ballet transforms the body into an articulate instrument. The Atlanta company dancers are receptive, generous. They can do extraordinary things. I had to show off their talents.”

Currently a Distinguished Professor of Ballet at Indiana University, Verdy is a retired NYCB principal, and has held artistic directorships for the Paris Opera and Boston Ballet companies. – Colleen M. Payton
