The Fiddle & the Drum

May 9 - May 11

Event Navigation

Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the world premiere of Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum, a storied collaboration that launched what has become Alberta Ballet’s hallmark concept—its signature portrait ballets. This work gives passionate expression to Mitchell’s lifelong concern with the issues of conflict, violence, and humanity’s continuing devastation of the environment. Alberta Ballet dancers depict Mitchell’s most famous characters from her lyrics and artwork, at times in counterpoint, abstractly illustrating our fragile hope and potential for the creation of beauty.
