Phoenix New Times: Four Things to Do With Your Sweetie in Phoenix This Valentine’s Day Weekend
February 2nd, 2022
Call it the Hallmark-industrial complex, but there’s definitely a lot of pressure to make Valentine’s Day a special day for you and your significant other.
Besides the perfect gift and a reservation at an intimate dinner for two, a special performance is often a part of many couples’ celebrations of love. Here are four events happening around Valentine’s Day in metro Phoenix that just may take your holiday from good to great.
Romeo & Juliet
February 10 through 13
Hey, it’s a cliché for a reason. Can you think of anything more romantic than seeing the ballet version of one of the greatest love stories of all time on Valentine’s Day weekend? Us neither. Ballet Arizona will present Romeo & Juliet Thursday through Sunday, February 10 through 13, at Symphony Hall, 75 North Second Street. The Phoenix Symphony will perform Prokofiev’s score while the Ballet Arizona company tells the tale of the star-crossed lovers from warring families who (spoiler alert) meet a bad end.
Tickets are $35 to $174. Visit balletaz.org
