The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra

October 8, 2023 | 11:00 AM

Stanton Welch choreographed The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra in celebration of his 10th year as Artistic Director of Houston Ballet. He felt that this piece of music was a good choice because a ballet company is a lot like an orchestra. Each dancer brings their own special quality, but they all need to work together. The ballet has 25 solos which means each dancer (and each instrument) gets a chance to shine, and they all come together to dance a spectacular finale.

My First Ballet: Sleeping Beauty

April 7, 2024 | 11:00AM

A lavish production that premiered in 1990,  Ben Stevenson’s The Sleeping Beauty is recognized as one of the supreme achievements of classical ballet. His is an exquisite interpretation of the classic French fairytale by Charles Perrault: a beautiful princess is cursed by an evil fairy, and doomed to sleep for a hundred years – only to be awakened by the kiss of the handsome prince who loves her. Stunning costumes and spectacular sets by Desmond Heeley help make the production as magical as the story it tells.
