Houston Ballet’s Spring Mixed Repertory is powerhouse program, pairing two 20th century masterpieces with the company premiere of a delightfully comic work created in 2010.  

  • George Balanchine’s romantic masterpiece Serenade, a showcase for the company’s classical technique, opens the evening.
  • Inspired by Vera Brittain’s poignant wartime memoir Testament of Youth, Gloria is a haunting elegy for “the lost generation” of young men who perished in World War I.  The ballet is a magnificent synthesis of dance, theater, and music: Poulenc’s exquisite choral work, performed live by an ensemble of 50 singers, combines with the drama of love, loss and heartbreak.
  • Closing the evening is Cacti, the first work by Alexander Ekman to enter Houston Ballet’s repertoire - a gleeful, hilarious parody of the excesses of contemporary dance.
