The Loves of Mars and Venus, by John Weaver – A Royal Academy of Music Research Event
FREE ENTRY TO ALL
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.
