Beyoncé took on the role of the biggest cheerleader for her sister Solange, as she made her debut as a composer for the New York City Ballet. Solange, who made history as the first female African-American composer, wrote an original score for Play Time, which was choreographed by Gianna Reisen.
The show was a part of the New York City Ballet’s Fall Fashion Gala and it features costumes designed by Alejandro Gomex Palomo. It premiered at the Lincoln Center this week and has slated more performances for October and May as a part of their Fall and Spring showcase.
Beyoncé took to Instagram to congratulate her Grammy award-winning sister on her latest accompaniment. “My beloved sister, there are no words to express the pride and admiration I have for you,” the ‘Break My Soul’ singer wrote in the caption. “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.”
Solange Knowles also shared some behind-the-scenes from that night on her Instagram as she celebrated and enjoyed the show with her close friends and family.
