Ballet in one act with choreography by MacMillan, music by Fauré, and design by Yolanda Sonnabend. Premiered 28 Nov. 1976 by the Stuttgart Ballet with Haydée, Keil, Cragun, Madsen, and Andersen. This setting of Fauré's 1886/7 score is dedicated to the memory of Cranko and employs a large cast of dancers to explore the music's subtle delineations of sorrow. It was re-staged by MacMillan for the Royal Ballet in 1983. Russillo and Casado also choreographed Fauré's score in the same year.

Subjects: Dance.
