Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if a ballet has been written based on Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons?

Tons of 'em, the best probably by Jerome Robbins.

Also James Kudelka's, which premiered in 1997. There are clips on YouTube and a video about the story/themes and lead role here.

Yes, I was in Paris this February and saw it. I love the music, but the ballet? Not so much...my husband described it as "Bollywood on drugs meets 2001: A Space Odyssey"! You can tell he's not a contemporary ballet aficionado!

 

But the dancing was wonderful, and the Opera Garnier is a wonderful experience in itself.
