Abstract:
Luvina is a short ballet for chamber orchestra based on well-known Mexican writer Juan Rulfo's short story Luvina, from his book El Llano en Llamas. This three-movement ballet evokes the dark world of Luvina. Each movement depicts three images from the story resulting in nine images. Musically the text is represented by the use of diverse textures and compositional techniques, including tone rows, cryptograms and the use of timbre, color, and contour. The wind - as stated in the text - is used as a leit motif serving as a transition vehicle to move the story along. Unlike other ballets that contain an inherently Mexican quality to them, this twentieth first century ballet fits under the category of a modern work that makes use of uncommon instrumentation, extended techniques and contains an atmospheric quality to it.
