Known for cultivating dancer-choreographers, Houston Ballet fosters artists both on and offstage for Originals. The program will feature the premiere of Floreciente, a one-act ballet by Principal Dancer Melody Mennite set to music by Rene Aubry, Ezio Bosso and Max Richter; the world premiere of Principal Dancer Connor Walsh’s A Joyous Trilogy (in flight), with music composed and conducted by Dallas native Quinn Mason; and two ballets by Artistic Director Stanton Welch: the return of The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra and the first-ever joint performance between Houston Ballet and the globally acclaimed Dance Theatre of Harlem in Welch’s Orange.
