Houston Ballet performs a mixed repertory program consisting of three short works: Stanton Welch's The Core:  Gershwin, the Heart of the Big Apple as well as Mr. Welch's Tu Tu and Christopher Bruce's Hush.
 
The Core is a lavish, crowd-pleasing blockbuster inspired by  the movie musicals of Hollywood's golden age, while Tu Tu is a glittery and dynamic display of talent and classical technique.
 
Hush, created in 2006 for Houston Ballet, is Christopher Bruce's whimsically poignant celebration of life chronicling the adventures of a family of performers, set to selected tracks from the album of the same name by Bobby McFerrin and Yo-Yo Ma.
 
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
