Houston After Harvey: The Return of the Ballet

Less than an hour away, the city of Houston is easily accessible for that trinity of the performing arts: the opera, the theater, and the ballet. The Houston Ballet is renowned for its stellar performances, cutting-edge choreography, and inspiring repertory selections, and, although they are still acclimating themselves to the changes wrought by Hurricane Harvey, they have regrouped for a new season at a variety of venues. The company is continuing the performances of its “Hometown Tour,” in the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Jones Hall, the George R. Brown Convention Center’s General Assembly Hall, and the George R. Brown Convention Center’s Resilience Theater.

The 2018 Repertory performances include “Rock, Roll, and Tutus,” a selection from the “Unconventional Ballets at the Convention Center” series, and Australian choreographer Tim Harbour’s “Filigree and Shadows.” The Academy Spring Showcase will feature “Mixed Repertory Play,” the second of the “Unconventional Ballets at the Convention Center,” “Play,” set to the sounds of DJ/techno artist Moby, and the revival of “Bolero.” And members will be happy to hear that “Don Quixote” is returning after a 12-year hiatus.
