Who knew that former Beatle Paul McCartney had a love of the ballet? Turns out, McCartney has written the score and the liberetto for new ballet Ocean’s Kingdom, which opens at Lincoln Center in New York on January 19th.
Chereographed by New York City Ballet’s Peter Martins and with costumes by McCartney’s designing daughter, Stella McCartney, Ocean’s Kingdom tells the dreamy story of Princess Honorota, daughter of King Ocean, romance with Prince Stone, son of King Earth. I wonder if it will be anything like Back to the Future’s Enchantment Under The Sea Dance. Here’s hoping.
