Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edward II is a ballet with music by the English composer John McCabe. Commissioned by Stuttgart Ballet, with a narrative conceived by choreographer David Bintley, the ballet largely follows the plot of Christopher Marlowe's play of the same name, rather than the life of the real Edward. Bintley incorporates elements of the 14th century satire Le Roman de Fauvel, with the character of Edward replacing that of the ass Fauvel, Piers Gaveston as the Fool and Queen Isabella as the Virgin.show more
