About

WORLD PREMIERE

Houston Ballet returns to Jacob’s Pillow for the first time in almost 40 years. Australian Artistic Director Stanton Welch has led the respected company since 2003, marking its evolution into a world-class troupe of 60 dancers that calls the largest professional dance facility in the United States home.

Celebrating a wide range of classic and contemporary ballet, Houston Ballet brings a program featuring Welch’s Clear, an abstract work for seven men and one woman set to music composed by Bach; In Dreams by former Choreographic Associate Trey McIntyre; excerpts from Welch’s Sons de L’ame set to piano pieces by Frédéric Chopin, and Just a world premiere by Welch, commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow, with a music score by one of America’s most-performed contemporary composers and co-founder of Bang on a Can, David Lang.


 Houston Ballet’s appearance at Jacob’s Pillow is generously underwritten by Melza and Ted Barr. Additional support provided by Houston First, Houston Methodist, United Airlines, and the Fayez Sarofim and Company Touring Fund.
