The Houston Ballet is presenting Poetry in Motion, a mixed-repertory outing that includes Christopher Wheeldon’s Carousel (A Dance) (2002) with music by Rodgers & Hammerstein II. Principal Sara Webb will reprise roles she’s danced before, as “the girl” in Carousel and the first-movement principal role in George Balanchine’s Symphony in C (1947) with music by Bizet. “Christopher Wheeldon took the best part of [Carousel], the part at the carnival where they fall in love. It’s just fun and happy,” she says. As for Symphony in C, she says, “It’s typical Balanchine. It’s very beautiful; the patterns are very musical. It’s very grand. It will be the final piece on the program showcasing the entire company.” Audiences will also have a look at the Houston Ballet premiere of Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s Powder (1998) with music by Mozart which was commissioned for the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

7:30 p.m. Friday and October 26. Hobby Center For the Performing Arts, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-227-2787 or visit houstonballet.org. $35 to $135.
