Houston Ballet presents Winter Mixed Repertory Program
In its winter repertory program, Houston Ballet introduces three masterpieces into the company’s repertory in a thrilling evening of dance.
Dyad 1929 is the first work by the celebrated British Royal Ballet choreographer Wayne McGregor to be performed by Houston Ballet. Set to Steve Reich's Pulitzer Prize-winning Double Sextet and dedicated to the memory of modern dance legend Merce Cunningham, the work showcases Mr. McGregor’s trademark style of dynamic contrasts and intensely physical partnering.
West Side Story electrified audiences when it premiered on Broadway in 1957, and this collection of dances and songs from that landmark production exemplifies the electricity, vitality and dramatic poignancy of this quintessentially American work.
Jirí Kylián’s Wings of Wax is a visually arresting work in which eight dancers perform to haunting pieces of music by four great composers, with their encounters unfolding underneath the canopy of a giant tree.
