After a critically-acclaimed debut in 2019, Disha Zhang's Elapse returns to the stage for an encore not to be missed. Exploring the idea of aging and the passage of time, her first piece choreographed for an American company is set to a captivating original score by Zeng Xiaogang. George Balanchine's Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux is described by New York City Ballet as "an eight-minute display of ballet bravura and technique." Welch's The Four Seasons dramatizes the stages of a woman's life, from the vigor of youth in spring to the introspection of old age in winter. Set to Antonio Vivaldi's beloved score of the same name, the large ensemble work returns for the first time since its premiere in 2007. Rounding out the program is a world premiere by Dwight Rhoden, Founding Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer of Complexions Contemporary Ballet— his first for Houston Ballet. Rhoden has created works on notable companies such as New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and The Washington Ballet. At 7:30 PM on June 6,8,14,15, 2024 At 2:00 PM on June 9,16, 2024
