Adam and Eve (1932)



As in Cross-Garteríd and Lysistrata, Tudorís talents were demonstrated in the way he portrayed his characters and in the consciously heightened and amusing manner of his treatment of small groups of dancers onstage. Tudorís developing ideas of choreography were based on ballet technique, but with a peppering of dramatic accents and gestures. The scenario approximately follows the biblical story, with the important difference that a final reconciliation scene of all the characters in the ballet was added.
