Imagine Peter Martins, the Ballet Master-in-Chief of the New York City Ballet, approaching Paul McCartney (of The Beatles — as if you didn’t know that, ha!), and nonchalantly asking, “hey, would you want to write music for a ballet?” And in return, Mr. McCartney simply replying, “yes”.
That was the beginning to Ocean’s Kingdom, a new work from the New York City Ballet, which is premiering on January 19th. You can watch a special behind-the-scenes video on the new ballet above. Oh, and by the way, Stella McCartney designed all the costumes for the new ballet.
What an amazing collaboration between different types of artists! Hope you get the chance to see it.
