Job: A Masque for Dancing (one act ballet) by Ralph Vaughan Williams

“The ballet is based on the Book of Job from the Hebrew Bible and was inspired by the illustrated edition by William Blake, published in 1826. Job had its world premiere on July 5, 1931, and was performed for members of the Camargo Society at the Cambridge Theatre, London. The first public performance of the ballet took place on September 22, 1931 at the Old Vic Theatre.” ~Wikipedia
