“My beloved sister, there are no words to express the pride and admiration I have for you,” she wrote to Solange. “You are a visionary and one of a kind. 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 deeply.”

“I might suggest you don’t truant with my sister,” she added.

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

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