If you're in the Houston area next week, make sure you put this event on your calendar: May 9–11 at 8 pm, Houston Ballet will give three free performances at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. Two Stanton Welch works are on the program, Play and Sons de L'ame (Sounds of the Soul), as well as the variation-filled third act of Paquita.
The box office will distribute tickets on the day of the performance, 10:30–1:00. Each person in line can reserve up to four tickets, but you must be 16 or older to pick them up. If you can't get there early to nab a seat, the hill behind the reserved area will be open. For more information, see houstonballet.org.
