On a building site in London's *East End, the Foreman's jealousy and betrayal bring about events of appalling violence. Kenneth MacMillan's The Judas Tree is his final ballet, and still his most controversial. MacMillan commissioned a score from Brian Elias for the ballet, which had its premiere in 1992. Both MacMillan and Elias were inspired not only by Biblical stories of betrayal but also by contemporary events - the violence in Tiananmen Square; the creation of the financial district in Canary Wharf. As MacMillan admitted of the finished work, 'There are things in me that are untapped and that have come out in this ballet that I find frightening'.
