Locally grown. World renowned.

Only a company with the depth and breadth of Houston Ballet could assemble a locally grown program by some of the world’s most sought-after choreographers: James Kudelka, Edwaard Liang, Oliver Halkowich, and award-winning Chinese dance maker Zhang Disha.

A Celebration of Artistry

This 50th Anniversary Jubilee of Dance promises to be even more spectacular than ever. With spoken narrative and exquisite dance, the evening will present a glimpse into the history of the Company, as told by some of its most beloved artists.

Forged in Houston

Continuing its tradition of supporting the world’s most respected choreographers, this uplifting program features Jorma Elo’s ONE|end|ONE, Christopher Bruce’s Hush, and a world premiere by Trey McIntyre, who has created more than 100 ballets, many on Houston Ballet dancers.

From Houston to the World

Mark Morris created The Letter V on Houston Ballet to audience and critical acclaim. Aszure Barton’s Angular Momentum was influenced by the city’s architecture and set to a score about the moon landing. Arthur Pita makes his Houston debut with a world premiere created on Company dancers.
