From the introductory text on the website of Rosas:

The original choreography as a group piece was created in 1995 as a part of an Arnold Schönberg evening in the Brussels Opera House De Munt / La Monnaie. By rewriting the group piece as a duet, both the narrative and the musical aspect come to the foreground. Expressive crescendos and diminuendos guide us through dramatic events, echoing an ever-modulating stream of emotions. A shameless romantic love story, in the pale light of a transfigured night.
