This programme includes the ballet Bells, by former Bolshoi Ballet dancer and resident choreographer for the San Francisco Ballet, Yuri Possokhov.
The Joffrey Ballet also performs Taiwanese-American dancer/choreographer Edwaard Liang's Age of Innocence, danced to music by Philip Glass and Thomas Newman. Liang drew inspiration from the 19th-century ballrooms of Jane Austen's heroines, where a glance or touch of the hand could ignite love, longing, and frustration. A world premiere by Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch, commissioned by the Joffrey, closes out this programme.
