San Francisco Ballet just announced an additional Sunday evening, pre-Valentine’s performance, and these tickets are currently up to 50% off.

SF Ballet’s full-length “Giselle” tells the story of a peasant girl with a heart problem. Today, she might receive a pacemaker for her condition, but back in the 1800s, Giselle’s options were quite limited.

Upon her death, she protects her lover from vengeful, ghostly spirit women (Wilis) who are forever plagued by broken hearts. “Giselle” is a classic story ballet, filled with desire, tragedy, and love.

If you don’t want to be plagued by Wilis, you might want to take your current sweetie to see “Giselle.” You’ll get bonus points if you also get him/her chocolate.

What: San Francisco Ballet’s Giselle
Where: War Memorial Opera House, 301 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco
When: Additional performance added for February 13
Tickets: Online, via 415.865.2000, or at the Ballet Box Office at 301 Van Ness Ave.

She remembers bright lights and spinning in circles with her eleven other bees, but nothing more. Becca also has an affinity for things beginning with the letter "P", including Pizzetta 211, Fort Point, pilates, parsvakonasana, and plies.
