Saint Louis Ballet opens its new season with the romantic and haunting French ballet Giselle. The titular Giselle is a peasant girl who is wooed by Albrecht, a nobleman in disguise. Unfortunately, Albrecht is already betrothed to another, and Giselle has a weak heart. Albrecht isn't bothered by his fickleness until he's caught between the two women and Giselle dies from a broken heart. Matters only get worse for Albrecht when the vengeful Wilis appear. These vengeful spirits were once women, but all died from broken hearts, and they intend to punish Albrecht by dancing him to death. But can a pure love from beyond the grave save him? Saint Louis Ballet performs Giselle at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday (November 3 to 5) at the Touhill Performing Arts Center (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus. Tickets are $34 to $59.
