The Nutcracker

Production generously underwritten by Houston Methodist Hospital It’s snowing. It’s glowing. The beauty is showing. Nothing will put you in the holiday spirit faster than Stanton Welch’s production of The Nutcracker. With glimmering sets and costumes and lively dance, The Nutcracker is a dreamy experience from start to finish.

The Sleeping Beauty

Think you waited a long time for your first kiss? Princess Aurora waited 100 years. With storybook sets and meticulously detailed costumes, Ben Stevenson’s The Sleeping Beauty is a classical expression of the familiar fairytale, made all the more special by his exquisite choreography.

Forged in Houston

From three of the world’s most respected choreographers comes a program created entirely on Houston Ballet dancers. Jorma Elo’s ONE|end|ONE reflects the dance maker’s quirky movements. Christopher Bruce’s Hush is a poignant celebration of life set to the music of Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin. The contemporary program concludes with a world premiere from Trey McIntyre.

Romeo & Juliet

Production generously underwritten by Melza & Ted Barr Stanton Welch’s Romeo & Juliet made its world premiere at Houston Ballet in 2015 and has since traveled as far as Australia. The breathtaking production is a brilliantly imagined interpretation of the world’s most famous love story.
