Today we check in with Houston Ballet to hear about their upcoming performances of Stanton Welch’s ‘Sylvia.’ We are joined by Houston Ballet Artistic Director, Stanton Welch, and Principal dancers who will be performing the leads in the ballet, Connor Walsh and Karina González. We first spoke with Stanton Welch on the podcast in 2018 in episode 98, had Connor on in 2019 in episode 158, and are welcoming Karina on for the first time.
Today we speak with this trio about what lead them each to Houston Ballet, getting back onstage this season for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, their work and process of creating ‘Sylvia,’ and what audiences can expect from this original full length production. Houston Ballet’s ‘Sylvia’ is on stage March 10-20, 2022 at the Brown Theater in Houston, TX. For tickets and more information about Houston Ballet’s 2021-2022 season, visit houstonballet.org.
