Why See Houston Ballet: Legends & Prodigy?
Houston Ballet celebrates its corps de ballet with three mixed repertory performances in one show! Jiri Kylian's Stepping Stones is one man's personal exploration of his cultural heritage, created whilst on a trip to Australia. The second work by Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen, Grosse Fuge, celebrates Houston Ballet's strong male lineup, whilst the third piece by Justin Peck, Year Of The Rabbit encompasses the entire corps de ballet.
Stepping Stones is a Houston Ballet premiere specially created for eight dancers, danced to the strains of John Cage's Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano and Anton Webern's Six Bagatelles for String Quartet. Grosse Fuge, set unsurprisingly to n Beethoven's Grosse Fuge, Op. 133 also focuses on eight dancers, and originally premiered in Holland in 1971 at Netherlands Dance Theater. The Year Of The Rabbit is the second work by Justin Peck for New York City Ballet, and a musical collaboration with singer-songwriter Sufjan Steven, in which he wrote the electronic album Enjoy Your Rabbit.
