Through Jan. 7. "Mor- ris Louis Now: An American Master Revisited." The Baltimore-born Louis (1912-62) had a short but brilliant career painting romantic abstrac- tions composed of sheer veils of diluted acrylic paint. Some thirty canvases will be included here. Nov. 4-Jan. 24. For "Louvre Atlanta," the High has entered into a three-year partner- ship agreement that will bring highlights from the French museum to Atlanta. The rst exhi- bition displays works collected by Louis XIV and Louis XVI, including paintings by Frago- nard, Reni, Velázquez, Poussin, Rembrandt, and Raphael. Oct. 14-Sept. 2, 2007. “THe PillowMAn” Jasson Minadakis directs Martin McDonagh's drama, in which an author of grisly, witty chil- dren's stories (Daniel May) draws the attention of police when children begin dying in circum- stances that are suspiciously similar to those detailed in his stories. The production runs through Oct. 14. (Actor's Express Theatre at the King Plow Arts Center, 887 W. Marietta St., Suite J-107. 404-607-7469.) fox THeATre 660 Peachtree St. N.E. (404-881-2100)---Sept. 19: The Hasidic reggae performer Matisyahu was born on the 5th of Tamuz, 5739 (or June 30, 1979), as Matthew Miller. After a child- hood in Westchester, New York, and an epiph- any in the Colorado Rockies, he visited Israel and found Jah. He has since been rewarded dearly: his album "Youth" hit No. 4 on the charts earlier this year. Sept. 20: The ambitious young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumen- talist Sufjan Stevens intends to record an album for each of the fty states. He kicked it off three years ago, with "Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lakes State," an homage to his birth- place. Last year's release, "Illinois," and this year's collection of "Illinois" outtakes, "Ava- lanche," nd him moving (slowly) through the Midwestern part of the country. VArieTy PlAyHouse 1099 Euclid Ave. (404-521-1786)---Oct. 7: If bluegrass has a guitar god, it's Tony Rice. His graceful playing has left a generation of aspiring guitarists trying to duplicate his clean, high-speed, otherworldly sound. His singing partner is Peter Rowan, a master of the high lonesome who came of age in Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys and went on to record, with Jerry Garcia, Vassar Clements, and David Grisman, the legendary live bluegrass album "Old & in the Way." Oct. 15: The former teen-age wonder and Radish front man Ben Kweller has long since left his grunge days be- hind; he has matured into an amusing popster. ATlAnTA syMPHony orCHesTrA The A.S.O. has bene tted from the vigorous lead- ership of Robert Spano, a conductor who rst distinguished himself as a new-music expert; the Scottish conductor Donald Runnicles, a more mainstream maestro admired for his work in the opera house, is the orchestra's principal guest conductor. Sept. 21 and Sept. 23 at 8 and Sept. 24 at 3: In the opening program, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony is preluded by a contemporary American work, Jennifer Higdon's "Dooryard Bloom," a setting of Whitman's elegy for Presi- dent Lincoln. Sept. 28-30 at 8: Spano, beginning a two-week riot of Anglophilia, leads Vaughan Williams's ethereal "Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis" and the powerfully understated Fifth Symphony, along with Beethoven's "Em- peror" Concerto (with the pianist André Watts). Nov.2andNov.4at8andNov.5at3:Run- nicles comes to town to conduct serenades by Mozart, Britten (the Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings, featuring the powerful Met tenor Paul Groves), and Brahms (the pastoral Serenade No. 2 in A Major). (Atlanta Symphony Hall. 404-733-5000.) ATlAnTA oPerA The city's opera company specializes in profes- sionally polished performances of traditional fare. Its season opens with an unconventional pairing of two passionate works: Leoncavallo's "Pa- gliacci," a brutal tale of sex and murder in an Italian village, and Orff's secular cantata "Car- mina Burana," a more positive af rmation of sensuality with mythic German overtones. The cast features the New York City Opera diva Emily Pulley, along with Jay Hunter Morris and Gor- don Hawkins; Joseph Rescigno conducts. Oct. 5 and Oct. 7 at 8 and Oct. 8 at 3.
