Producer Mark Ronson is to work with his ‘Record Collection’ collaborator Andrew Wyatt – he of Swedish three-piece Miike Snow – on the musical score to a new work by The Royal Ballet.

Avant-garde fashion designer Gareth Pugh is also involved in the as-yet unnamed project, which has been billed as “a perfect fusion of pop, dance and fashion”.

Royal Ballet representatives state that the new show will “focus on the Jungian theme of anima/animus and the theory of collective masculine and feminine unconscious”. Make of that what you will, but I predict brass accents and lots of the colour black.

Devised by Wayne MacGregor, the RB’s resident choreographer since 2006, the production will feature nine songs composed by Ronson and Wyatt. It’s set to premiere at the Royal Opera House in April.
