When it was originally performed in 1913, The Rite of Spring, a collaboration of Igor Stravinsky and Vaslav Nijinsky, shocked the audience with its audacious music and controversial subject matter. To mark the 100th anniversary of this exceptional work, Stanton Welch is honoring the tradition of artistic collaboration with his own Le Sacre du printemps, a new staging featuring art by the famed Australian painter Rosella Namok.

Also on the program is a world premiere by Edwaard Liang, an internationally renowned choreographer making his debut in Houston, and Pacific, a joyous and beautiful ballet by celebrated American choreographer Mark Morris.
