Reimagining Vivaldi's Four Seasons

It is a challenge to take a piece of music everyone knows so well like Vivaldi's Four Seasons and perform it in a different way.

This week on the South Bank in London, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is using a simple idea but one that has not been used before in the UK.

Musicians will interact with dancers on stage to create a new vision of the Four Seasons which breaks traditional boundaries.

The Today programme's Nicola Stanbridge went along to experience it in rehearsal.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme on Friday 8 February 2013.
