Houston Ballet's Poetry in Motion will feature the following performances:

  • Symphony in C: Houston Ballet revives George Balanchine’s first commission for Paris Opera Ballet, Symphony in C. Choreographed to French composer George Bizet’s ravishing Symphony in C Major, this neoclassical ballet radiantly showcases the full company’s technical aptitude and poise.
  • Carousel (A Dance): The enchanting ballet Carousel (A Dance) by award-winning British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon returns. Created as a tribute to Rodgers and Hammerstein and their beloved Broadway musical, Carousel (1945), Wheeldon poignantly adds his charming contemporary touch to this familiar score.
  • Powder: Originally commissioned for Birmingham Royal Ballet, Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s Powder is a sensuous contemporary ballet for fourteen dancers that explores the expressiveness of Mozart’s iconic Clarinet Concerto in A Major.
