A night at the ballet.
The arrival of a ballet company Angel last saw in 1890 prompts him to take his friends out to see a little culture.
Watching the dancers, Angel realises that it's not just the same company as a century ago, but the same dancers. Investigating lands Angel and Cordy in a sensually charged haunting, replaying the act of infidelity which led to the dancers being cursed to an eternity of the same performance.
Wesley, meanwhile, makes his own sad discovery about the path of true love.
Quiz - ten quick questions.
Trivia: The ballet the team go to see is Giselle, first performed in Paris in 1841. It's a deeply sad romantic tragedy, about infidelity, madness and hauntings.
This episode was originally designed to showcase the dancing skills of Amy Acker (Fred), who studied ballet and modern dance for thirteen years. Ironically her big dance scene with Wesley was cut from the final version, though it appears on the season three DVD as an extra.
The prima ballerina is played by Summer Glau, who went on to play River Tam on Joss Whedon's space series, Firefly.
