McCartney’s debut into the world of ballet is a story of good and evil, love and war that takes place in the depths of the ocean. An hour long score featuring four stunning movements - "Ocean's Kingdom," "Hall of Dance," "Imprisonment" and "Moonrise" - the ballet tells of a love story within the story of an underwater world whose people are threatened by the humans of Earth. A potently expressive and richly varied work, the score is Paul's most challenging and emotionally complex yet.

Commissioned by New York City Ballet, the music draws on late Romanic composers while maintaining McCartney’s genius for simplicity and melody. The result is a breathtaking and imaginative orchestral work—one that proves yet another artistic facet of the legendary musician.

Reviews
¦some of its most expansive tunes have hints of Borodin and Samuel Barber; some of its atmospheres evoke Ravel; and its jolliest passages are on the cusp of Bernstein's Candide.
