Le Jeune Homme et La Mort is a ballet by Roland Petit, choreographed in 1946 to Bach's Passacaglia in C Minor, BWV 582 (omitting the fugue), with a one-act libretto by Jean Cocteau. It tells the story of a Young Man driven to suicide by his faithless lover. Sets were by Georges Wakh vitch and costumes variously reported as being by Karinska or Cocteau. Petit is purported to have created Le Jeune Homme et La Mort for his wife Zizi Jeanmaire, but it is also reported to have been danced by Jean Babil e and Nathalie Philippart at its 25 June 1946 premiere at the Ballets des Champs-Elys es.show more
