The Loves of Mars and Venus by John Weaver was the first modern ballet, telling a story through dance, gesture and music. Its first performance was at Drury Lane in 1717. The history books say the score and choreography are lost, but did they ever exist as such?

A detective story led by Evelyn Nallen  on recorder,  with dancer Chiara Vinci  and David Gordon  on harpsichord.
