Go Get It: Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle And The Drum DVD by the Alberta Ballet

Released today is a DVD of the Alberta Ballet’s production of Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and The Drum under the direction of choreographer Jean Grand-Maitre. This has been playing in Canada for a couple of years now, and recently debuted with an extended version adding more songs to the show. This DVD doesn’t include those new additions but it should still beautifully capture what is supposed to be a fantastic adaptation and culmination of Joni’s music.

    1. The Fiddle and The Drum
    2. Sex Kills
    3. Passion Play (When All the Slaves Are Free)
    4. Three Great Stimulants
    5. For the Roses
    6. Slouching Towards Bethlehem
    7. The Beat of Black Wings
    8. If I Had a Heart
    9. If
    10. Big Yellow Taxi

      It also includes special bonus material:

      • Behind the scenes with Joni Mitchell and Jean Grand-Maitre, Alberta Ballet dancers Kelly McKinlay and Nicole Caron, and director of filming Mario Rouleau
      • Joni Mitchell’s video installation from the set
