St. Louis Ballet: Love Stories 

When: Sat., Feb. 10, 8 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 11, 2:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $24-$59
Not only is Saturday Mardi Gras in St. Louis, it's also the unofficial observation of Valentine's Day this year (the actual day is Wednesday, which is a tough break for a romantic holiday). To mark the occasion, St. Louis Ballet returns to the stage with Love Stories. The program matches ballet to the music of the Romantics. Christoper d'Amboise uses the music of Franz Schubert for his pas de deux Pandora's Box, while Miriam Mahdaviani's Between the Lines requires the talents of the entire company performing to George Gershwin's "Three Preludes." Gen Horiuchi provides two dances for the show: Love Stories is a world premiere set to St. Louis contemporary composer Barbara Harbach's Transformations for String Quartet and Carondelet Caprice for Chamber Ensemble, while Horiuchi's La Vie uses the music of Claude Bolling. Love Stories is performed at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday (February 10 and 11) at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; Tickets are $24 to $59.
