Put the Plie in Passion 

Love, the shape-shifting temptress, she reveals herself to us in all possible ways. There's the kind of true devotion that you see when your beloved scrapes off your windshield for the thousandth time, and there's another kind that's laid bare through a beautifully and tenderly prepared homemade meal. Still others may see amour most clearly onstage, when impeccably trained ballet dancers perform their hearts out to share their glorious gift of movement to move you -- and your true love, of course. This last kind of love, the power of love through dance, is exactly what's on the menu at Love Is in the Air, Saint Louis Ballet's special Valentine's presentation. During this concert, which features the music of Sinatra and other romancers, our fair city's own ballet company performs choreography by the world-famous Twyla Tharp, alongside pieces by company artistic director Gen Horiuchi, a tremendous talent in his own right. Indeed, love will truly be in the air, starting at 8 p.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday (February 14 and 15). The concert takes place at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or, and tickets cost $28 to $45.
