The range of our dancers is on display in a program made up entirely of premieres. After the triumph of her World Premiere Angular Momentum created in 2012 for Houston Ballet, Aszure Barton returns with Come In, a contemporary work for thirteen male dancers. Following the tremendous response to Justin Peck’s Year of the Rabbit, we’re pleased to welcome him back to Houston Ballet with Reflections, a World Premiere for the company. Look forward to seeing his approach, which is always energetic, current, and focused on the power of the music. Continuing our tradition of bringing Jiří Kylián’s ground-breaking works to Houston like Petite Mort, we’re pleased to present Kylián’s Dream Time. As part of the choreographer’s iconic repertoire at Nederlands Dans Theater, this ballet captures the power of dance to transcend time and communicate across all barriers, beautifully danced to a gorgeous score by the legendary Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu.
