Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Fox Theatre for its 2015 Atlanta engagement featuring three special programs. The events run from Feb. 11 – Feb. 15, but you can get a special holiday ticket offer now.
When you purchase tickets over $25 by 10 p.m. on December 24 you can save 20 percent with code EARLYAILEY. Limit 8 tickets. Tickets with a face value of $25 or lower or tickets to Ailey Fan Night on Wed., Feb 11 are excluded.
The six performances include the Atlanta premiere of ODETTA, a tribute to singer Odetta Holmes once called “the queen of American folk music” by Martin Luther King, Jr. Scheduled company premieres will introduce Ailey audiences to ballets by two different and respected choreographers whose works are being performed by Ailey for the first time – Jacqulyn Buglisi, a former Martha Graham dancer and Hofesh Shechter.

and Peter Gabriel and was originally staged for Ailey in 1986. Ailey fans will also see old favorites including Robert Battle’s Takademe, Ronald K. Brown’s Grace and the timeless Revelations at the end of every performance.
