Sylvia, a Grand Ballet, Comes to the Stage of the Wortham Theater Center
Bold and beautiful, Wortham Theater Center is a theater like no other. It is a masterful, creative playground for performing artists and offers an array of public spaces, both monumental and intimate. Wortham Theater Center invites you to join us on February 21st as Houston Ballet presents Sylvia.
Stanton Welch AM brings his own interpretation to the classic story of the strong mythological heroine, the huntress Sylvia, and her love for a mortal shepherd. The ballet follows her journey as she’s torn between her duty and her desires. Welch’s inspired work will showcase a constellation of figures from Greek mythology woven together in a tapestry of three love stories.
Sylvia is set to Léo Delibes’ famous score and provides an opportunity to see the classic story through Welch’s unique and creative narrative. This mythical romance is surrounded by gorgeous costume and scenic designs by world-renowned ballet and opera designer Jerome Kaplan, with projections by Houston Ballet favorite Wendall K. Harrington, whose designs were featured in Stanton Welch’s The Nutcracker.
Tickets start at $25 and may be purchased online at www.houstonballet.org.
