Houston Ballet – Return of the Masters

We preview Houston Ballet’s season-opening program, Return of the Masters, with Grant Coyle, who has re-created Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Song of the Earth for the company. That piece is one of three dance works to be featured on Return of the Masters, opening Thursday night at the Wortham Center.

Dance-master Grant Coyle chats with St.John Flynn.
