Bach and Ballet

So I'm scrolling through Facebook and come across a post from the New York City Ballet. Lo and Behold, I read this:

"If someone told you that seeing a certain piece of art, listening to a particular piece of music, or watching a specific ballet would transform your life and alter your vision of the world, you would definitely make sure you saw, listened or watched, right? Well here's your chance. Jerome Robbins' The Goldberg Variations."

This mini-documentary about how Bach's Goldberg Variations are performed as ballet is inspiring. I'm a huge fan of Bach and of ballet, so watching the melding of the two together is a double portion of beauty, art and joy!
