Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts


Giselle's heart is so broken, after she dies from the pain of it, she haunts her lover with a vengeance. Stephen Wynne, founder and artistic director of TALK Dance Company, presents the classic ballet, "Giselle," Friday.

Wynne chose to have three dancers in the lead role to depict Giselle's different sides: the trusting girl, the suspicious lover and the jealous ghost. In a scene with vengeful female spirits dancing, Wynne choreographs a fashion show.

This post-modern ballet starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, in the Bitsy Irby Visual Arts and Dance Center at Belhaven University. A question-and-answer session follows. Tickets are $15. For information, call 601-965-7026.
