The Pet Shop Boys, the techno-pop duo, have scored their first ballet. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story The Most Incredible Thing, the ballet is choreographed by Venezuelan dancer Javier De Frutos. It has opened to mixed reviews that match the reviews the PSBs have received their entire career: dramatic, uneven, fun, unforgettable, and a bit confused. If unable to make it to London to see the show the soundtrack was released last week. More on the show below:
I am anxious like a school kid the night before school starts. Tonight I am seeing the ballet Swan Lake for the first time in my long, long gay life. I always wanted to see Swan Lake as a child and tonight I finally get the chance! But this ain’t your Mama’s Swan Lake. This one is gay, honey.
