Three of the world's leading female choreographers take Houston Ballet on a spectacular odyssey of dance with a fall repertory program unlike any other. Julia Adam's Ketubah was originally created in Houston. The tale of a traditional Jewish wedding, the ballet showcases the natural humor and story-telling style of the affable choreographer. Already a Houston favorite, acclaimed young Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton creates Angular Momentum, a theatrical work specifically for dancers of Houston Ballet. And the legendary Twyla Tharp demonstrates why she's recognized as one of the pioneers of contemporary dance with The Brahms - Haydn Variations, a neoclassical milestone.
