What's a better springtime treat than some ballet alfresco? Texan dance lovers are in luck: Houston Ballet will present three free performances at the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park on May 11, 12 and 13 at 8 pm. The company will dance excerpts of Giselle, Swan Lake and Le Corsaire. Grab your free tickets (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between 10:30 am and 1 pm.
Even if you can't make it to Houston, check out a video preview of the company in Russian ballerina Ai-Gul Gaisina's staging of Giselle.
The Miller Outdoor Theatre is located at 6000 Hermann Park Drive in Hermann Park, just south of The Museum of Natural Science and the Houston Garden Center. Additional information can be found online, or by calling 281.373.3386.
