Created in partnership with the Houston Ballet, «Tsuru» was commissioned by and premiered at Asia Society Texas Center in 2015. Inspired by Japan's popular The Crane Wife folktale, «Tsuru» weaves contemporary choreography with theatrical movement and live music, creating a graceful and elegant retelling of the beautiful story.

In the folktale, a crane chooses to transform into a woman and become the wife of the man who releases her from a hunter's trap. To help her husband prosper, the wife weaves beautiful textiles using her feathers, which eventually cause her to weaken. Upon the man's discovery of his wife's true identity, she flies away, leaving him forever. At its core, this is a story of love, sacrifice, deception and the impermanence of beauty.

Performers will be led by principal dancer and conceptualizer Nao Kusuzaki. Born in Japan and raised in the United States, Kusuzaki recently retired as one of Houston Ballet's soloists after 12 years with the company. The project's creative team includes choreographer Kenta Kojiri and director Matthew Ozawa.

All performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre are free of charge. Assigned seating is available, and details on how to obtain those tickets, and other information about seating, can be found on their website. Open seating on the hill is available.
