Miller Outdoor Theatre, Houston Cinema Arts Society, and Houston Ballet present the stunning documentary dance performance film Sons de L'âme (“Sounds of the Soul”) choreographed by Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch and set to piano pieces by Frédéric Chopin performed by Lang Lang. Taped in Paris, and broadcast on television in several European countries, Houston Ballet’s performances premiered to standing ovations at the historic Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France in October 2013.  

The world premiere of the documentary originally appeared at Miller Outdoor Theatre as part of the 2014 Houston Cinema Arts Festival. Due to unseasonably low temperatures that prevented many from attending in November, the film is being presented once again for those who missed the premiere (and, of course, for those who attended and want to see it again).

Reviewing Sons de L'âme for the Houston Press, critic D.L. Groover observed, “Welch has pared his distinctive choreography to match the refined music. The overall mood is clean and elegant, technically brilliant and powerfully emotive. Is there another contemporary choreographer who can move dancers on and off stage with such proficiency and know-how? The classical vocabulary he uses doesn't only express the music but also illuminates. He makes us see Chopin. The view is hypnotic.”
