Morris, Welch & Kylián
Houston Ballet’s Summer Repertory program features three of the most dynamic and musical choreographers working today: world premieres by Stanton Welch and Mark Morris and an iconic ballet by Jiří Kylián. Welch explores the twelve signs of the zodiac in a new piece set to a commissioned score by distinguished Australian composer Ross Edwards. Building on his popularity with local audiences, preeminent American choreographer Mark Morris returns to create his first commissioned work for Houston Ballet. Jiří Kylián’s Svadebka is his interpretation of an important composition in ballet history, Stravinsky’s Les Noces.
