Quick Reference

Ballet in one act with libretto and choreography by A. Howard, music by Honegger (arr. Charles Lynch), and design by Nadia Benois. Premiered 15 May 1939 at Mercury Theatre, London, by Ballet Rambert with Gilmour and Boyd. It is set to various orchestrated piano pieces by Honegger and, inspired by David Garnett's novel of the same title, it tells the story of an elegant woman who is really a vixen. Torn between her natural instincts and her love for her husband she finally escapes civilization to rejoin the wild. It was revived for Ballet Theatre in 1940 and a partly reconstructed version, with additional choreography by Mark Baldwin and a new score by Benjamin Pope, was premiered by Rambert Dance Company in 2006.

Subjects: Dance.
