Houston Ballet presents American at Heart at the Wortham


Houston Ballet's American at Heart is a trio of dance works that span the twentieth century, but which have in common a particularly American spirit.

Fancy Free depicts the adventures of three sailors on shore leave who meet two girls on a hot summer night in New York City in the 1940s, set to a Leonard Bernstein score.

Representing a pivotal moment in the development of twentieth-century ballet, George Balanchine’s Apollo follows the Greco-Roman god of music, poetry and prophecy as he interacts with three of the mythological muses.

Set to music from the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin, Christopher Bruce’s funny and moving Hush chronicles the life and times of a family of performers.
