Knowles is set to write an original score for work (as yet untitled) by Gianna Reisen, which will premiere at the company’s annual Fall Fashion Gala on September 28, 2022 at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
The piece will be performed by a chamber ensemble and will feature some of Solange’s frequent collaborators as well members of the City Ballet orchestra.
Solange's latest collaboration with Reisen will bring her back to her love of dance that she cultivated as a child in Houston, where she saw Lauren Anderson, a ground-breaking Black principal dancer at the Houston Ballet. “My dream was to go to Juilliard,” Solange once said in an interview.
Following the premiere during the Fashion Gala, the production will be staged on Oct. 1, 8, 11, and 16 of this year, as well as on May 2, 11, 13, 17, and 18 in 2023,
