In June 2007 Gabriel Feltz was conducting in Milan and during a break in rehearsals he visited a well stocked music shop and made an amazing discovery - the score from a ballet by Respighi which he had never heard of: Belkis, Queen of Sheba.
Premiered in 1932, it was one of the most extravagant ballet productions ever staged, with over 200 musicians and at least as many dancers. After a few performances, the work was forgotten until it was rediscovered by Gabriel Feltz and the decision was made to film the concert.
A world premiere recording released on Blu-ray and DVD, this is the story of a ballet performance without ballet - Cinema for ears!
