Continuing the long-standing commitment to bringing Jiří Kylián's work to Houston, the program adds another of his works to the Company repertoire with the premiere of Kylián's Overgrown Path. Set to the deeply moving score from composer Leoš Janáček, the work was created in 1980 for Nederlands Dance Theater in dedication to the legendary choreographer Antony Tudor. Making its Houston Ballet debut, Stanton Welch's Bespoke was created on San Francisco Ballet in 2018. Set to a series of Johann Sebastian Bach's violin concertos, the ballet explores dancers' love for their artform and the fleeting cycle of being a performer, with motifs of time present throughout the piece. Joining the two Houston premieres is Australian choreographer Tim Harbour's rhythmic, fast-paced Filigree and Shadow, taking the stage at the Company's home theater for the first time after its debut during the Hometown Tour following Hurricane Harvey in 2018.At 7:30 PM on March 7,9,15,16, 2024 At 2:00 PM on March 10,17, 2024
