about Rock, Roll & Tutus:

Houston Ballet's Rock, Roll & Tutus

Contemporary ballet has come of age, and it's looking better than ever. At 20 years old, Christopher Bruce's Rooster is still rocking audiences around the world. It's a fast-paced romp of machismo and nostalgia set to eight classic tracks by The Rolling Stones. Also on the program are two ballets by artistic director Stanton Welch: Tapestry, a world premiere choreographed to Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, and Divergence, the explosive ballet that put him on the international map.
