HOUSTON BALLET: BREAKING BOUNDARIES
Inspiration, determination, diplomatic struggles and color-blind casting: the story of Houston Ballet is a fascinating tale. Join us for the world premiere of Houston Ballet: Breaking Boundaries, a new documentary chronicling the history of the company over five decades.
Featuring interviews with star dancers Debbie Allen, Carlos Acosta, Li Cunxin and Janie Parker, and four of Houston Ballet's five artistic directors, the film traces the rise of Houston Ballet from the dream of a few influential Houstonians to a company of international acclaim.
