She's The Firebird as envisioned by choreographer James Kudelka and scenic designer Santo Loquasto.<P>On Thursday, Houston Ballet will present the U.S. premiere of the latest take on Michel Fokine's famous 1910 ballet, which introduced dance audiences to the colorful music of Igor Stravinsky. Two casts will offer seven performances in the Wortham Theater Center's Brown Theater through March 4. Sharing the bill is the company premiere of Ben Stevenson's Five Poems.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P> <A HREF="http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/story.hts/headline/entertainment/824159" TARGET=_blank>http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/story.hts/headline/entertainment/824159</A> <BR>

From the Houston Chronicle:<P><B>HOUSTON BALLET PREMIERES FIREBIRD, FIVE POEMS</B><P><center> Image </center><P><center><font size=1>Drew Donovan / Houston Ballet <BR>Lauren Anderson stars in Houston Ballet's production of The Firebird with choreography by James Kudelka.</font></center><P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>A dancer walks slowly, cautiously, onto the stage, into silence. Quietly, the music begins. This is how both of the works Houston Ballet presented on Thursday at the Wortham Center's Brown Theater - Five Poems and The Firebird - began. But from there, they took wildly divergent paths.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/story.hts/ae/dance/831606" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

From the Houston Chronicle:<P><B>FIREBIRD AND FIVE POEMS WEAVE MAGIC</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The big draw was the U.S. premiere of The Firebird by Canadian choreographer James Kudelka and designer Santo Loquasto. It was the Godiva of eye candy, layer after phantasmagoric layer. But the company premiere of Ben Stevenson's serene Five Poems worked a subtler magic of its own.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR><A HREF="http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/story.hts/ae/dance/831891" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>
