Joni Mitchell Ballet?

Today's Observer Music Monthly reports (extremely) briefly,that Joni Mitchell is collabarating on a new Ballet in Canada which "tackles themes of human conflict and the environment."
Does anybody have any further information on this fascinating but frustratingly brief News snippet.

Have just read the interview (which is well worth checking out)
It's the (the very well thought of) Alberta Ballet.
Great to have her back.

Alberta Ballet's homesite report that it premiered last week & has been filmed for T.V.
This being the case then hopefully we'll get a chance to see it here in the U.K. at some point in the future.

I read a large article on it...might still have it around...don't think it went out for recycling, yet. I'm not positive that it might have been last Sunday's New York Times. Regardless, it was very positive and very in depth. It seems she liked the idea so well, that she wrote new songs for the entire ballet.

The other great Joni Mitchell site if you don't know it is http://www.jmdl.com

Some of the guitar tabs are excellent - I learnt A Case of You a while back from there and it sounds authentic
