The price Jerome Robbins paid in his personal life for his art was extremely high. Weaving in the story of her long relationship with Robbins, Conrad connects "Watermill" with the underlying stresses of his romantic relationships. The ballet followed an extremely shattering personal time. As he said in his work notebooks, it was autobiographical and he was "healing." Conrad makes the link with an earlier ballet, Facsimile (1946), that told of a similar tale of triangulating between lovers -- a pattern he was never able to conquer in his lifetime.
Completely fascinating and surprising new material.
