Houston Ballet: Summer & Smoke

Houston Ballet is proud to present this phenomenal triple bill Summer and Smoke in March! A world premiere of Cathy Marston’s Summer and Smoke, co-produced with American Ballet Theatre is inspired by Tennessee Williams’ eponymous poem set to a commissioned score by Michael Daugherty.  The Company brings back one of George Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces for the first time since 1977: Concerto Barocco. This piece is set to Bach’s Concerto in d Minor for Two Violins to spotlight the balletic relationship between dance and music. Joining the program is one of Stanton Welch’s hallmark ballets, Clear, which showcases the depth of talent of Houston Ballet’s male dancers with choreography set to Johann Sebastian Bach. This unique perspective of storytelling is not to be missed!
