Published Feb 22, 2012Whether working with Amy Winehouse, the Black Lips or Rufus Wainwright, producer extraordinaire Mark Ronson has had a handle on pop and rock markets for quite some time, but the artist will be going more highbrow with an upcoming ballet he's putting together with Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt.
NME reports that Ronson and Wyatt are working on nine new songs for an as-yet-untitled piece to be performed by the UK's Royal Ballet. The production will premiere in April at the Royal Opera House in London. It will be performed six times as part of a triple bill.
Wyatt had previously worked with Ronson when he contributed to two tracks on the producer's 2010 set, Record Collection.
The new tunes are described by the Royal Ballet as focusing on "the Jungian theme of anima/animus and the theory of collective masculine and feminine unconscious."
Choreography will be handled by Wayne McGregor.
