The Invisible Ballet
About this work:
A ballet in 11 movements, for string orchestra and diverse other instruments. The dancers never appear, hence the title. They mill about in confusion backstage, argue with the stage manager, leave the theatre, discuss the evening's events at a local bar - but they never dance.
