Houston Ballet opens with Return of the Masters

Houston Ballet will kick off the 2011-2012 season with Return of the Masters, a program showcasing three stunning works that have been absent from our repertoire for too long! We’re thrilled to bring back Sir Frederick Ashton’s Les Patineurs, Jerome Robbins’s In the Night and Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Song of the Earth. Artistic Director Stanton Welch shares his thoughts and a little background information on each of the ballets here.

Enjoy these beautiful photos from our archives and definitely check out our photo gallery for more! Return of the Masters opens Thursday,ย  September 8 and runs through September 18.
