A pas de deux in the Romantic style. The Ballerina and Premier Danseur remain on stage through the complete performance, although there are variations for each of them, which is a departure from the conventional pas de deux. Humorous bits of mime as well as virtuoso sections make a very light and joyous work.

Pianists, Earl Stafford and Neal Kayan
"Family Scenes" grew out of dramatic situations in the relationships of a family group, not as a story, but as a sequence of loose portraits or melodramatic pictures. In this stage game there is love, generally hidden or remembered with melancholy and hatred, sadness, jealousy, tenderness, security or respect, confusion, loneliness, and other more subtle sentiments which do not yet have exact names, all in a constant play of attractions and repulsions, sometimes simul?taneously. The situations are expressed in a language that uses "living pictures," poses, and exaggerated gestures.
