Description: Excertp from "The Traitor" - Finale
From: VAI DVD 4224 José Limón: Three Modern Dance Classics
Music by Gunther Schuller (1955)
"The Traitor was Limón's response to the McCarthy hearings and the climate of betrayal that haunted the arts and entertainment fields during this period. Against a music score of violence, passion and tenderness (by Gunther Schuller), the tragedy of Judas is portrayed as if it were taking place in modern times."
