The Houston Ballet Previews THE YOUNG PERSON'S GUIDE TO THE ORCHESTRA with Free Talk
On Friday, Feb. 28 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. at Houston Ballet Center for Dance join us for Preview of a Premiere: The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. In celebration of his 10th anniversary as artistic director of Houston Ballet, Stanton Welch has created a world premiere ballet to Benjamin Britten's famous score. Houston Ballet's artistic staff will talk about Britten's work as a composer and how the creative team was inspired by this particular piece to create an exciting new work that features the entire company. Principal Pianist Katherine Ciscon will play excerpts from Britten's work, and assistant conductor Ned Battista will discuss the score's unique features and rich history.
Join Houston Ballet for its free Dance Talks lecture series to learn more about the works on Houston Ballet's stage and the artists behind the works.
Unless otherwise noted below, all Dance Talks are held at Houston Ballet Center for Dance, 601 Preston Street in downtown Houston, 77002.
