Programme Note

BRIEF PROGRAMME NOTE

In the past, man used the moon and stars to serve as watch and calendar: to make it easier, they gave the star formations the names of animals, of heroes and of heroinesand so the zodiac evolved. This forms the basis of the ballet, the dancers playing a social game, illustrating to each other different zodiac signs. One scene represents each sign. The music is inspired by modern Greek folk music.
