If the Olympics have whetted your appetite for watching people push the limits of human physical ability, head to the ballet.
The Richmond Ballet opens its 25th anniversary season on Sept. 16 with its Studio Theatre production of Anthony Tudor's Jardin aux Lilacs. The piece is about a woman who doesn't want a marriage of convenience, instead hoping to plunge into a passionate relationship with another man. The accompanying music was composed by Ernest Chausson and is played with a live violin and piano.
The ballet, which runs through Sept. 21, will also include a complementing world premiere by prominent choreographer William Soleau. For more details, call 344-0901 or visit richmondballet.com .
