Houston Ballet confirms reside exhibits for the 2021-2022 season

Tickets are now available online. The first performance of the 2021-2022 season is scheduled for September 30th.

HOUSTON – The Houston Ballet will finally return to the Wortham Theater Center with live performances this fall after the pandemic canceled its final season. This emerges from a publication that was sent out on Monday.

“We grew out of this troubled time and were inspired by our community to continue creating art that reflects the diverse and innovative city we call Hometown,” said Stanton Welch AM, art director, Houston Ballet.

The Houston Ballet will begin its 2021-2022 season with Margaret Alkek Williams Jubilee of Dance, which runs from September 30th to October 3rd, 2021.

It’s a long-awaited return for local performance art fans entertained with virtual showcases.

Meanwhile, Houston Ballet supporters can enjoy the company’s first in-person live performance since the pandemic began more than a year ago. The dance company will perform on May 7th and 8th at Hermann Park’s Miller Outdoor Theater for the very special world premiere of Reignited.

Last year the fans were broken when the Houston Ballet was forced to cancel its annual performance of The Nutcracker, a longstanding tradition. During the pandemic, the company also laid off around a third of its employees and put its dancers and musicians on leave.

Season subscriptions are available now on the Houston Ballet website.
