La Rose Malade

A ballet piece based on the poem The Sick Rose by the English poet William Blake. 

The hidden love of an invisible, evil insect. Even recognizing this, the rose is drawn to the insect's passion, resonates with it, and eventually becomes unable to let go and crumbles. The petals of the noble rose, with its thorns, fall one by one. Even that figure of decay is beautiful.

This is a collection inspired by such scenes.
