Beyoncé Celebrates Sister Solange’s NYC Ballet Score Debut

Beyoncé is a proud big sister of Solange who made her debut as a composer for the New York City Ballet.

Choreographed by Gianna Reisen, it was Solange who wrote an original score for Play Time that premiered this week at Lincoln Center as part of NYCB’s Fall Fashion Gala, with a number of follow up performances scheduled for October and May.

Demonstrating support for her younger sibling Beyoncé took to Instagram on Saturday (10.01), posting slideshows that featured photos and videos from her sister’s evening at the ballet, writing:

“My beloved sister, there are no words to express the pride and admiration I have for you.” “You are a visionary and one of one. Congratulations on being the first African American woman to compose for the New York City Ballet. The piece you composed is phenomenal. I love you deep.”

“Might I suggest you don’t f*** with my sis,” she added.

“heart so fulll,” Solange wrote on her own Instagram page, where she also shared several photos from her big night where the score she penned was performed by the City Ballet Orchestra and a soloist from her ensemble.

“There’s a lot of nuance to it. It’s exciting, for sure,” Reisen said of the score in an interview with All Arts. “That’s what I wanted; I wanted something that would kind of keep the audience on their toes.”
