Ballet in one act with choreography by Tudor, music by Dvořák, set by Ming Cho Lee, and costumes by P. Zipprodt. Premiered 17 Jul. 1975 by American Ballet Theatre at New York State Theater, New York, with Tcherkassky, Kirkland, Tippet, C. Ward, and Kage. Set to a selection of Dvořák's music (including the String Quartets, Opp. 77 and 80), it is a series of wistful romantic duets for seven couples which seem to embody a woman's nostalgic memories. Unusually for Tudor, it is a near-plotless work. It is in the repertory of several companies, including the Royal Ballet, the Kirov, Paris Opera, and Ballet West.

Subjects: Dance.
