This classic ballet is about a young peasant girl who loves to dance, but she dies of a broken heart after her lover betrays her. She is inducted into a clan of vengeful female spirits, who summon her from her grave. They try to force her lover to dance himself to death, but true love saves him. It also releases her from the spirits’ power, leaving her to rest in her grave in peace.
I am excited to watch this performance which requires not only incredibly skilled dancers, but is renown as a shining example of classic ballet. I have always enjoyed watching ballets, and I have not had the chance to watch one since I was a lot younger.
The show is playing Sunday, February 23 at 7:00 PM at the Michigan Theater.
