Brian Wilson is to make his ballet debut at an English National Ballet gala fundraiser next month.
The former Beach Boy, along with his band, will perform a set of classic hits with ENB dancers onstage to close the Royal show in London on November 11.
As part of the collaboration with Wilson, a one-off dance is being created by the ENB set to ‘God Only Knows’ from Wilson’s acclaimed Pet Sounds album.
Wilson’s spokesperson commented: “Brian is very excited and honoured to be asked to perform on this royal evening with the English National Ballet. Brian is also very much looking forward to seeing English National Ballet perform his favourite composition.”
The gala is being held to celebrate the ENB’s new production of The Snow Queen and will raise vital funds for the company.
Wilson, enjoying a resurgence in popularity in the past few years, recently premiered his new composition ‘That Lucky Old Sun (A Narrative)‘ – with a series of six shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
