  • Sir Paul McCartney's Pas de Deux with NYCB

    7292962_paulmaccartney_240As we first mentioned back in June, the former Beatle was tapped to score an "unnamed" ballet for an "unnamed" ballet company. Well, the cat's been let out of the bag!

    The name of the ballet is "Ocean's Kingdom" and it's created especially for New York City Ballet. "Sir Paul has been working closely with Peter Martins, the company's ballet master-in-chief, who will choreograph the show. Martins said the idea of a collaboration struck him when he bumped in to the Beatle at a fund-raiser for the School of American Ballet (the training ground for the NYCB) last year: "I knew, of course, about his foray into classical music and his interest in it. I said to him, 'Maybe we could do something together,'" McCartney took him up on the idea, and the stage was set for a unique collaboration."
