Houston Ballet its exciting mixed rep on Thursday - Falling by Stanton Welch, Hans Van Manen's popular 5 Tangos, and James Kudelka's World Premier of Little Dancer, set specifically for the company. Images from the performance and rehearsals can be viewed at http://insightphotog...ugmug.com/Dance.

Dance Europe reviewed the Dance Salad Festival in its latest issue. Photos from the pieces are in the gallery as well.

Thanks, amitava. The slide show of photographs is striking and dramatic. The company looks mature and very, very secure.

Ballet Talk used to have regular posters from Houston, but things seemed to have quieted down in the past few years. Did anyone attend this mixed bill? A program of Kudelka, van Manen and Welch doesn't sound like the old Ben Stevenson days. I think that many would be interested in impessions about how Welch is doing and about the changes he has made.

I notice that the last program of the season premieres tomorrow, Thursday, June 5: La Sylphide plus Welch's Doll's House, with music by Istvan Marta. It would be very interesting to hear about that, too!
