toursenlair Posted January 20, 2013 Share Posted January 20, 2013 From Friday's Houston Chronicle, Houston Ballet announces its 2013-14 season: Feb. 20-March 2, 2014: "Aladdin" (David Bintley) The American premiere of David Bintley's "Aladdin," created in 2008 for the New National Ballet of Japan, is aimed at young audiences. This will be Houston Ballet's first work by Bintley, one of the hottest choreographers in Europe. Featuring scenery by Dick Bird, costumes by Sue Blane and lighting by Mark Jonathan, it's a co-production with Birmingham Royal Ballet, which Bintley directs. "It's based on the novel, like the Disney production," Welch said. "It's very appropriate for children and has a great sense of humor. It also has a lot of roles - very challenging, very dance-y. Hopefully it will lead to more collaboration." [my emphasis] Welch said the company will take "Aladdin" to Chicago. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
