Joni Mitchell: The Fiddle and the Drum: Alberta Ballet Company (2007)
Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum explores Mitchell's life-long concerns about environmental neglect and the warring nature of mankind within a ballet performed to a select soundtrack of her eternal songs. The unique combinations of three art forms music, dance and art comprise an engaging spectacle that Joni calls "the best project of her career." Legendary Canadian artist Joni Mitchell and internationally acclaimed choreographer Jean Grand-Maître of the Alberta Ballet Company are the co-creators of Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and The Drum. This narrative ballet was performed to an especially remastered soundtrack of Mitchell's compelling music - her musical selections are from her earliest to latest recordings such as: For the Roses, Passion Play, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The Beat of Black Wings, Sex Kills, The Three Great Stimulants and The Fiddle and The Drum.
