Writing a score in Benesh

I’m currently getting ready for going to teach Christopher Wheeldon ballet The Winter’s Tale with the National Ballet of Canada in Toronto which was originally premiered in 2014 with The Royal Ballet.

As I was notating a section I thought that I should film myself writing a section that I am currently working on and could share it with you.

This is just a work in progress and not a finished product but it’s quite revealing in how much time it takes to notate and how much cross-referencing/checking that I do.

I hope that you will enjoy, your comments are gladly welcomed.

  1. Your notation looks very polished for a “work in progress,” Anna! What a great idea to compress almost an hour’s work into a few minutes. Gives a fascinating overview of the process of writing up a Benesh score. Thanks for sharing. Rhonda Ryman-Kane

  2. Great video Anna. Makes score writing look almost effortless. Shows just how well you know and understand the piece. Have a great time in Canada and enjoy meeting up with Benesh colleagues in Toronto. Liz Cunliffe
