Jardin aux Lilas

Amid a farewell party in an Edwardian garden, this tale brims with tension as young lovers are torn apart by a bride’s marriage of convenience to a monied, older gentleman. Performed to Chausson’s Poème for Violin and Orchestra, Antony Tudor’s choreography reveals vagaries of the human heart through furtive meetings, whispered secrets and gestures of unfulfilled yearning.
