World Premiere: ‘Genji’
Friday, Mar. 24, 2023 – Saturday, Mar. 25, 2023
Genji, presented in partnership with the Houston Ballet, is the passionate and poetic new ballet by Nao Kusuzaki. It is a contemporary retelling of the classic novel The Tale of Genji, about friendship, love, and the dynamics of power and social class in Heian-period Japan. Featuring dancers from the Houston Ballet, sumptuous production design, and original music composed and played live by acclaimed musician Kaoru Watanabe, this is a not-to-be-missed world premiere event.
