PROGRAM
SERAPHIC DIALOGUE
Music by Norman Dello Joio Choreography by Martha Graham
Lighting by Jean Rosenthal 5c by Isamu Xoguchi
"Seraphic Dialogue" is the drama of Joan of Arc at the moment of her exaltation. In a dialogue with Saint Michael, Saint Catherine, and Saint Margaret, whose voices had guided her toward her destiny, she looks back upon herself as a maiden, a warrior, and a martyr, and, transfigured, is taken up to her place of honor.

LAMENTATION
Music by Zoltan Kodaly Choreography by Martiia Graham
Lighting by Jean Rosenthal
Piano Accompaniment by Louis Stewart
"Lamentation" is a "dance of sorrows." It is not the sorrow of specific person, time, or place, but the personification of grief itself.
Peggy Lyman
DIVERSION OF ANGELS
Music by Norman Dello Joio Choreography by Martha Graham
Lighting by Jean Rosenthal
"The city seemed to stand in Eden or to be built in Heaven . . . The dust and stones of the streets were as precious as cold . . . Eternity was manifested in the light of day and something infinite beyond everything appeared which talked with my expectation and moved my desire . . . The Men! Immortal Cherubim! And young men glittering, and sparkling angels, and maids seraphic pieces of life and beauty. Boys and girls, tumbling in the streets and playing, were moving jewels, I knew not that they were born or should die ... The streets were mine, the temple was mine, their clothes and gold and silver were mine, and so were the sun and moon and stars, and all the world was mine, and I the only spectator and enjoycr of it."
Thomas Traiierne
"Diversion Of Angels" is a lyric ballet about the loveliness of youth, the pleasure and playful?ness, quick joy and quick sadness of being in love for the first time. It tells no story, but like a lyric poem, simply explores its theme.
