Houston Ballet honors artistic director Stanton Welch's 10th anniversary season with a mixed repertory program spotlighting his remarkable choreographic breadth as well as the depth of talent of the dancers.

The centerpiece of the evening is the world premiere of Welch's The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. Set to Benjamin Britten's iconic work of the same title, this huge collaborative piece features the entire company and the talented musicians of the Houston Ballet Orchestra.

Also on the program is Welch's Maninyas and the Houston premiere of one of his earliest works, Of Blessed Memory, a tribute to his mother, Australian dancer Marilyn Jones.
