Jeu de cartes

Ballet in one act
to music by Igor Stravinsky

Hazardous Play

We are not card-players, there will be no cards in the ballet. The meaning of the original title which we have kept may be interpreted as follows: to dance to music by Stravinsky is always a bit of a gamble - how not to lose count. To compose a ballet for Maya Mikhailovna Plisetskayas birthday is even more of a gamble. We will go for broke!

    Leah

    Ballet in one act
    to music by Leonard Bernstein

    Synopsis

    Leah and Hannan were pledged to each other by their fathers and later fell in love, only to be separated when the girls father arranged for her to marry a wealthy suitor.

    Hannan, an impoverished rabbinical student, desperately turns to the Kabbalah to help him win Leah for himself, and as a last resort, he invokes the powerful but dangerous other-worldly formulae of ancient usage. At the supreme moment of discovering the secret words that unleash the dark forces, he is overwhelmed by the fierce ecstasy of the enlightenment and dies.

    At Leahs wedding, Hannan returns as a dybbuk (supernatural spirit) and, claiming her as his rightful bride, clings ferociously to his beloved. After the dybbuk is exorcized by the elders, Leah, unable to exist without her predestined bridegroom, leaves her life to join him in obliv-ion.
