Ballet Austin presents The Glass Project, February 14-16 at the Long Center.

First came The Bach Project. Then, The Mozart Project.

Now, the hauntingly beautiful music of modern master Philip Glass inspires the third work in Stephen Mills’ composer-centered series. This new production promises a full evening of compelling, provocative choreography shaped by Mills’ innovative approach to movement.

“Many people have described Philip Glass’ music as ‘minimalist’. Mr. Glass trained in harmony and counterpoint with famed teacher Nadia Boulanger, and because he studied the work of composers such as Schubert, Bach, and Mozart, I consider him a “Classicist.” If art is a reflection of the time in which it is created, I believe Mr. Glass sees a rhythmic, pulsating, anxious and hopeful world.” – Stephen Mills

  • Choreography by Stephen Mills, music by J.S. Bach and Philip Glass
  • Live Accompaniment
  • Audio description by VSA Texas available for the Feb 14 performance.
