Overview

THE LETTER V

Choreography: Mark Morris  |  Music: Joseph Haydn

ANGULAR MOMENTUM

Choreography: Aszure Barton  |  Music: Mason Bates

WORLD PREMIERE: ARTHUR PITA

Recognized worldwide as a famously musical choreographer, Mark Morris created The Letter V on Houston Ballet in 2015 to audience and critical acclaim. Of the work, Dance Europe wrote, “You left the theatre feeling a better person than when you went in, and that doesn’t happen too often.” Aszure Barton’s Angular Momentum has notable Houston heritage. Not only was the choreographer influenced by the city’s architecture including the etchings on the windows at the Center for Dance, the third movement of Mason Bates’s score was written about Houston and the moon landing. Arthur Pita has created works for San Francisco Ballet and for The Royal Ballet of London, but this program marks the first time that acclaimed choreographer has worked in Houston.
