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-Maitre of the Alberta Ballet Company are the co-creators of Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and The Drum.

The second largest ethnic group in Alberta, the German ethnolinguistic community has played a significant role in Alberta's history, but the future is bleak for maintaining German language and culture in the multicultural mosaic of Alberta. This book examines the stature of the German language in Alberta by addressing the use of German in the community and the teaching of German in schools and universities in the province.

Ballet and Opera in the Age of "Giselle" (Princeton Studies in Opera)

Ballet and Opera in the Age of "Giselle" (Princeton Studies in Opera) by Marian Smith
English | 31 Dec. 2000 | ISBN: 0691049947 | 288 Pages | PDF | 49.01 MB


Marian Smith recaptures a rich period in French musical theater when ballet and opera were intimately connected. Focusing on the age of Giselle at the Paris Opéra (from the 1830s through the 1840s), Smith offers an unprecedented look at the structural and thematic relationship between the two genres. She argues that a deeper understanding of both ballet and opera–and of nineteenth-century theater-going culture in general–may be gained by examining them within the same framework instead of following the usual practice of telling their histories separately. This handsomely illustrated book ultimately provides a new portrait of the Opéra during a period long celebrated for its box-office successes in both genres.
