Asia Society Texas Center says
Inspired by Japan’s popular The Crane Wife folktale, Tsuru weaves traditional ballet and soundscape with new movement and music, creating a graceful and elegant retelling of the beautiful story.

Tsuru is a world premiere production, co-conceived by Houston dancer Nao Kusuzaki. Asia Society is pleased to name Houston Ballet as its principal collaborator.

The Crane Wife summary: Most commonly, the story tells of a man who marries a crane disguised as a woman. The woman earns the couple money by weaving beautiful textiles from her feathers and, in doing so, becomes ill. Upon the man’s discovery of his wife’s true identity, she flies away, leaving him forever.

An additional performance on Sunday, June 28 features the same program.
