'Genji': A World Premiere

World Premiere: 'Genji'

'Genji,' the passionate and poetic new ballet by Nao Kusuzaki, is a contemporary retelling of the classic novel 'The Tale of Genji,' about friendship, love, and the dynamics of power and social class in Heian-period Japan. Featuring dancers from the Houston Ballet, sumptuous production design, and original music composed and played live by acclaimed musician Kaoru Watanabe, this is a not-to-be-missed world premiere event. Genji was commissioned by Asia Society Texas.
