The wait is over. Houstonians and out-of-town visitors can finally welcome back the Houston Ballet to the public sphere. Without further adieu, the performers are taking to the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage on May 7th and 8th.
The past year and some change, the COVID-19 virus has brought most public events to a halt. With that being said, this metaphorical cloud is clearing over Texas.
Recreational activities for Houstonians are increasing abundantly. As vaccinations become more readily available, we can go back to enjoying all of the amazing things our city has to offer!
One of the city’s most noteworthy (and most missed) highlights is its esteemed Houston Ballet. Although the company has been quite active in a virtual sense, a year has passed since these performers have taken the stage in the traditional sense. Now they are back at the Miller Outdoor Theater!
This performance, aptly named Houston Ballet Reignited, promises to be an emotional yet breath-taking experience. Accompanied by the Houston Ballet Orchestra and performed alongside multimedia elements, this show will steal the attention of its varied viewers.
The company’s dancers have stayed busy throughout this past year’s disappointments, including the abrupt cancellation of their tirelessly rehearsed Forged in Houston show. This devastation, among others, hasn’t stopped these dancers from pouring their hearts and souls into their craft. One can only imagine how powerful this reunion will be; this is an event that Houstonians don’t want to miss.
This public event inevitably comes with its own set of precautions. In order to keep visitors safe and worry-free, the Miller Outdoor Theatre has created socially distanced “pods” that can comfortably seat up to ten people. Attendees are asked to wear masks upon arrival.
Interested in tickets? Walk, don’t run! Because this is a free and highly anticipated event, tickets are expected to run out quickly. To reserve your spots, head to milleroutdoortheatre.com the week preceding these performances. Tickets will become available at 9 am.
