Giselle

Production generously underwritten by Lynn Wyatt
In this story of a peasant girl deceived by an aristocrat disguised as a commoner, the emotions of love, betrayal and redemption play out in stunning simplicity. With exquisite sets and costumes, Stanton Welch’s Giselle is one of the most beautiful ever produced.

The Nutcracker

Production generously underwritten by Houston Methodist Hospital
Snowflakes. Sword fights. Dancing dolls. A Christmas tree that reaches the sky. Stanton Welch’s The Nutcracker has something to delight everyone in the family. This enchanting version of the traditional holiday tale features the entire Houston Ballet corps in hundreds of fun and exciting roles.

The Sleeping Beauty

The fairytale is classic. 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. Ben Stevenson’s The Sleeping Beauty is as magical as the story it tells.

Romeo & Juliet
Production generously underwritten by Melza & Ted Barr

Set to Prokofiev’s breathtaking score, Stanton Welch’s exquisite production is a brilliantly imagined interpretation of the world’s most famous love story. The theme is Italian Renaissance and the choreography is fresh. The Bard himself would surely approve.
