“Interdisciplinary” would be a good way of describing the thematic framework of this performance. With The Four Seasons Jerome Robbins created a ballet to music by Giuseppe Verdi which makes a direct reference to opera. Fool’s Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, by contrast, is based on music by Joby Talbot which was originally composed for a film. Finally, Blaubarts Geheimnis is based on music by Philip Glass which was intended both as a film score and for concert performance. (Wiener Staatsoper)
