WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Afternoon of a Faun - A male dancer is sleeping in a ballet studio. Languidly he rises and begins to stretch. A girl enters and begins to warm up at the barre. They fall into a trancelike pas de deux ? which ends with the boy kissing the girl on the cheek. In the Night - Three very different couples - one of young lovers, another elegant and refined and the last tempestuously passionate - dance a series of sumptuous pas de deux.
