Summer is taunting us, with its beady eyes peeking around every corner, so to relish these final fleeting days of spring, the Texas Ballet Theater offers up amazing dance performances as part of SpringFest. Slated for the final weekend of the TBT festival is a can’t-miss double feature at the Wyly Theatre (2400 Flora St.), where the best local dancers will appear in an encore performance of Ben Stevenson’s acclaimed Mozart Requiem as well as a rendition of Theme and Variations, a stunning ballet by George Balanchine set to the final movement of Tchaikovsky’s Suite No. 3. Theme and Variations and Mozart Requiem will be performed all weekend long, with performances at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20 to $65. Call 877-828-9200 or visit texasballettheater.org.
