If you missed the Houston Ballet’s fall production of Giselle, you’re in luck. The company is reprising the romantic-era classic about broken hearts and forgiveness during a three-day run at Miller Outdoor Theatre. The company brings a new staging of the work by Ai-Gul Gaisina, who has been a central figure in the ballet world for more than four decades. Houston Ballet’s Artistic Director Stanton Welch is a huge fan of Giselle, stating, “Giselle is my favorite of all the classics because the story is the most complete, the resolution is believable.” The company will perform two additional pieces, a pas de deux from fan favorite Swan Lake and another from Le Corsaire. 8 p.m. Friday to Sunday. Hermann Park, 6000 Hermann Park Drive. For information, call 281‑373‑3386 or visit
May 11-13, 8 p.m., 2012
