                Fiddle and the Drum is a semi-abstract narrative ballet danced in neo-classical style
                and performed to 90 minutes of Mitchell's most relevant music. The dynamic stage,
                fully designed by Mitchell, will also includes some of Mitchell's latest artwork, which
                will be projected on a large canvas screen during the ballet.


                Alberta Ballet's athletic dancers merge – through energetic and sensual movements
                – with Joni Mitchell's eclectic sound and visual art, to create a contemporary ballet
                that awakens and stir the soul.


                "As an artist creating today, quite frankly, I can see no other subject matter that is of
                more importance now. We need people to awaken to this reality."
                - Joni Mitchell, singer & song writer


                "The creative process for Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and The Drum has renewed my
                faith in my relationship between art and life. Ms. Mitchell's selfless and gentle
                participation will most likely be the highlight of my entire career."
                - Jean Grand-Maître, Artistic Director & Choreographer


                This exhilarating ballet rencently brought Alberta Ballet and Jean Grand-Maître to the 
                forefront of the international arts community with the announcement that he will be
                Choreography Director for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games Opening,
Closing and nightly Victory Ceremonies.


"This is a ballet about the earth, for and about earthlings," said Mitchell, "It celebrates
with urgency expressed through poetry, music and athletic pageantry these
desperate times and yet, somehow, it leaves the audience grateful for the
experience."


Since its premiere in 2007, Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and The Drum has enthralled
audiences in New York, Toronto and around the world. This genre-defying ballet
inspired Sir Elton John ask Alberta Ballet Artistic Director Jean Grand-Maître to 
create a ballet to his music. Entitled "Elton" the ballet will premiere in May 2010.
