Behind the Scenes: Pet Shop Boys’ Contemporary Ballet
We first brought you the news of the ground-breaking Pet Shop Boys contemporary ballet score back in July. Production has really been heating up and now you can catch a special behind-the-scenes glimpse of “The Most Incredible Thing”, courtesy of Sadler’s Wells Theatre.
“Sadler’s Wells has joined forces with electronic pop legends the Pet Shop Boys and radical choreographer Javier De Frutos to create a brand new full-length dance work based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story, The Most Incredible Thing.
Featuring former Royal Ballet star Ivan Putrov, this modern fairytale centres on a contest to produce the ‘most incredible thing’, with a prize of half the kingdom and marriage to the princess at stake. With its thought-provoking narrative adapted by Matthew Dunster and film animation by BAFTA winner Tal Rosner, a 26-piece orchestra and a cast of 16, The Most Incredible Thing
is set to be a highlight of 2011’s cultural calendar.” ~ Quote Sadler’s Wells Theatre
