Tolkien Ballet

On the other side of the musical spectrum, the internet buzz has kicked in that a Tolkien based ballet, The Silmaril is in the works at the Butler Ballet and Symphony Orchestra, “based on the timeless love story of Beren and Luthien”. I could really see this working – it’s a story with modern interest (being Tolkien and all) but with very classic feel. And the write-up of the project suggests that it’s being done by people who “get” Tolkien. I’m intruiged. [via Ghost in the Machine]
