Dance with the Devil

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's harrowing, exquisite masterpiece Swan Lake tells the story of Prince Siegfried meeting tragic Odette, a princess who has been cursed to live as a swan by day, on the eve of his birthday betrothment ball. Siegfried falls for Odette and vows to free and marry her but is tricked when an identical Odette appears, swathed in black instead of Odette's signature swan white. Learn the fate of Siegfried and Odette and marvel at the breathtaking costuming and set design, raw talent, matchless score and mystifying choreography of Saint Louis Ballet's production of Swan Lake. The show debuts tonight at 8 p.m at the University of Missouri St. Louis' Touhill Performing Arts Center (One University Boulevard; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org). Tickets are $25 to $45.
