Program Notes

The ballet The Garden of Earthly Delights was composed for the Banda Sintonica Del Gobierno Del Estado (Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico - Ruben Flores, conductor) and the Vera-Danza Company (Jorge Luis Ortiz, director). The first performance took place in the Sala Grande del Teatro del Estado (Xalapa, Veracruz) October 4, 2006. By request from the Governor of the State of Veracruz, Fidel Herrera Beltran, the work was also performed in the famous San Juan de Ulua, Puerto de Veracruz, on October 11,2006.

The ballet consists of an introduction, three acts (each having four scenes), and an interlude to Act III. The scenario is from the Hieronymus Bosch 1504 painting titled, “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” The. ballet is dedicated to Captain Cesar Amora Aguilar, conductor for the premiere performance.

The publication of this work was made possible, in part, by a grant from the American Music Center (New York). The Garden of Earthly Delights is the first ballet for full symphony band composed for an internationally-acclaimed dance company.
