I was looking forward to American Ballet Theater's triple bill on May 21 with anticipation, because I had seen one of the ballets, Frederick Ashton's A Month in the County, years ago, and always held it in warm esteem. I remembered how moved I was as the curtain fell on the dancer (was it Lynn Seymour?) portraying the heroine, Natalia Petrovna, alone on the stage with nothing but a loveless and frustrating future awaiting her.

The iconic Wortham Theater Center is celebrating its twenty-fifth birthday this month. This building serves as a monument to Houston's long-standing desire to encourage and support the arts, as the $66 million dollars raised to build the center that celebrates performing arts came entirely from 3500 private sector donors. Without a doubt, the best birthday present that the building could be bestowed is the Houston Ballet's terrific triptych of works, Made in America. Artistic Director, Stanton Welch's trio of selections are wonderful and inspired choices. Each piece is moving and beautiful, and each piece offers audiences a different and very enjoyable experience.
