BRIEF PROGRAMME NOTE

The Last Laugh is a short abstract ballet for a small ensemble of dancers (from 3 to 10) and nine musicians. It is cast in three sections; the outer ones use instrumental music and the central one is a pre-recorded tape in which the soprano voice is heard in multi-track and electronic treatment.
