From Houston to the World

Houston Ballet's From Houston to the WorldFrom Houston to the World

As unique as each is, technical prowess is essential to the three works in this mixed-repertory program, all originally choreographed for the Houston Ballet dancers. Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo brings wit and humor to the extreme virtuosity that he demands in ONE/end/ONE. Inspired by flocks of birds flying in breathtaking unison, Edwaard Liang’s Murmuration is a deeply spiritual work for nine men and eight female dancers. Closing the program is Stanton Welch’s vivid interpretation of the third act of Paquita, a challenging, Spanish-flavored ballet first performed in 1846.
