Paul McCartney has given fans the chance to see a snippet of his new ballet.

Ocean's Kingdom premieres in New York tomorrow (September 22) and will be released as an album in October next year.


It is the first time the former Beatles star has written an original orchestral score for dance.

In the video, which you can watch below on Gigwise, McCartney said he had been given an active role in shaping the production.


Paul McCartney previews Ocean's Kingdom, which debuts in New York on Thursday.

“At the beginning of the third movement, I said, 'OK one of the characters is in prison she should be like this [puts his hands over his head].”

Ocean's Kingdom is due to be given its world premiere at the Fall Gala on Thursday alongside a performance of George Balanchine’s Union Jack.

Additional performances of Sir Paul's production are due to take place during the 2011/12 season, but dates have yet to be confirmed.
