Despite the tremendous amount of work that has been done on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes, motivated by the AdS/CFT conjecture, there are still many interesting unanswered questions about classical gravitation in such backgrounds. I will review numerical and heuristic arguments for and against the classical stability of anti-de Sitter and discuss recent analytical work for the case of asymptotically AdS spacetimes containing a black hole.
