Choreography: James Kudelka 
Music: Bohuslav Martinu˚ 
With Pretty BALLET, James Kudelka “tends to the muse,” creating a wistful homage to the art of ballet: conscious of lost dreams, but compelled to carry on.
“Thrilling, ingeniously designed, devilishly rebellious and brash in its showmanship” 
– Chicago Tribune

Forgotten Land
Choreography: Jirí Kylián 
Music: Benjamin Britten 
Stirring and beautiful, Forgotten Land was inspired by a painting of women on a beach by the Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch. The sea, with its giant waves, is a metaphor for constant motion; for erosion and renewal. Set to the music of Benjamin Britten, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.
“Lusciously fluid”
– Houston Chronicle

The Green Table
Choreography: Kurt Jooss 
Music: Frederick Cohen 
Created in the shell-shocked aftermath of World War I, The Green Table was a ground-breaking anti-war ballet. Today, celebrating its 80th anniversary, it stands as a vibrant masterpiece of German Expressionism, demonstrating the futility of war and the poignant price paid by its victims.
“A stunning assault of drama and unsentimental truth” 
– Chicago Tribune
