    Made in America

    Houston Ballet presents Made in America, May 24 through June 3, 2012, in Wortham Center - Brown Theater.

    Balanchine. Morris. Fonte. All three have created ballets for companies around the world. This program, however, was made entirely in America. Mark Morris's breezy Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes was commissioned by Mikhail Baryshnikov for American Ballet Theatre. George Balanchine created Theme and Variations, his grand tribute to the Imperial Russian Ballet, for the same company. Nicolo Fonte, a Brooklyn native who danced with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal and the Compañia Nacional de Danza in Madrid, will premiere a new work, choreographed specifically for Houston Ballet.

    "Theme and Variations is steeped in poetic allusion."
