Program Note

Leander and Hero takes as its point of departure the story of Leander and Hero’s tragic love. But in my version, Leander and Hero are cliffbirds who mate for life. Hero sits on eggs in the nest on the rocks while Leander fishes for food. Leander is killed in a violent storm at sea and does not return. Hero waits for him but when he does not come she leaves her nest to go look for him. She finds his body washed up by the waves. Like all birds who mate for life, she sits by his body, unwilling to leave his side even in death.
