Program Notes

Roses, possibly the best-loved of all flower, have played a part in both mythical and factual history. The red rose, for example, supposedly originated from the drops of blood when the mythical Greek god Adonis was killed by a wild boar. In British history the Wars of the Roses (1455-1485) resulted from a quarrel between the noble families of York and Lancaster, The emblem of the Yorkists was a white rose and that of the Lancastrians was a red rose. When, in 1485, the last Lancastrian representative, Herny Tudor, defeated the last Yorkish King, Richard III, and married Elizabeth of York (the following year), the white and red roses were united in the rise of the Tudors. The new dynasty lasted until 1603, marking the beginning of modern England.
