Every year, Houston Ballet serves up Jubilee of Dance, a sampler of some of the company’s finest works, both revivals and sneak peeks at upcoming premieres. This year’s performance is in honor of HB Managing Director C.C. Conner. The Gentlemen, a world-premiere piece choreographed in light of Conner’s upcoming February retirement, will feature the men of the company clad in seersucker suits: “C.C.’s favorite outfit,” laughs Shauna Tysor, a company spokesperson. Last year’s The Ladies will also be performed.
