Prometheus and Pandora : a ballet in 3 acts, for full orchestra / Lee Bracegirdle
by Lee Bracegirdle (2004)
A ballet in 3 acts, inspired by the classical Greek mythology: Prometheus acquires fire from the gods and brings it into the realm of titan-humans. As a reward the elder titans present him with Pandora as a partner, but there is a catch: Pandora comes with a box whose contents she does not know, and which she is forbidden to open. Prometheus and Pandora become lovers, but Pandora is increasingly tempted by curiosity and vanity to open the box. When she does so, the box releases 3 great evils which wreak devastation on the world. These "evils" personify the universal trials and challenges faced by all couples as their relationship grows and develops. Will it mean the end of Prometheus and Pandora, and hence the entire human race? Or will all be healed and redeemed with the aid of the box's 4th entity: "Hope"?
