Opus Number:  73
Music:  William Boyce
Set and Costumes:  Gene Moore
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  April 15, 1981
Notes:  “One of the few great art works created in [the 20th] century… exploring a new movement field of love and relationship. The women dance into the men’s arms as if Shakespeare had only written Romeo and Juliet the day before yesterday. I am convinced that this is one of the sentimental works of our time… something extraordinary in the history of dance. It bounces to a different drummer.” – Clive Barnes, New York Post
