Ballet Austin presents Restless Hearts
In Restless Hearts, Artistic Director Stephen Mills brings Rubies from George Balanchine, the father of American ballet. This work is the red-hot centerpiece of Balanchine's iconic ballet, Jewels, full of spark, sass and neoclassical choreography that’s uniquely American. Mills pairs this iconic piece with a contemporary ballet by Tony Award®-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon of Broadway and New York City Ballet fame. Wheeldon's Ghosts transports the audience to an ethereal place where lost souls are looking for love. It showcases a softer, fluid style of dance that’s as haunting as the specters on stage performing it.
