Two female soloists are accompanied by four male and eight female dancers in this ballet set to Telemann’s spirited Baroque music. On a bare stage and wearing simple, pale blue practice clothes, the dancers create formal patterns. The two lead dancers take turns with the corns, paralleling the interplay between the flute and strings. There are two bright solos to flute for the women. The more lyrical fourth movement features gracious partnering for two corps couples and a duet for two corps women. The ballet concludes with a lively gigue, danced by the entire cast.
