From the program notes:
Love, it has been said, does not obey the rules of love but yields to some more ancient and ruder law. The Garden of Love seeems always to be threatened by the Stranger's knowledge of the world outside and by the old knowledge of those like Lilith (according to legend, Adam's wife before Eve) who lived there first.
