Ballet Austin presents Pieces of Passion: Four Dances by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, February 15 – 17 in Dell Hall.

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s distinctive style of dancemaking is as sensual as her Latin roots, and when it comes to mixing performance with passion, she always delivers! While making a name for herself with major ballet companies around the world, this choreographic phenom returns to Austin at Artistic Director Stephen Mills’ special invitation to showcase some of her favorite works, including the luscious Requiem for a Rose, the flirtatious, all-male Sombrerisimo, and two intimate duets that will leave you wanting more. Extend your Valentine’s Day festivities with this stimulating artistic experience!
