It’s a busy weekend for Austin. We’ve got Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras celebrations, the LIVESTRONG Austin Marathon, and many more. Check out some of Miss A Austin’s top picks for this weekend.
Ballet Austin presents Rite of Spring
Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring celebrates its 100th Anniversary this year. The ballet and score “stirs up the emotions, in fact, this music evoked such a reaction from the audience at its premiere decades ago in Paris that a riot broke out,” according to Choreographer Stephen Mills.
And with spring around the corner, it is the perfect time to celebrate with those you love.
February 15 and 16 at 8 p.m. and February 17 at 3 p.m.
