Radiohead Go Ballet

Subscribe to Radiohead alerts

British rockers Radiohead are taking their acclaimed music in a bizarre new direction - the ballet.

The THERE THERE hitmakers will be providing some of their most popular tunes to a new production called SPLIT SIDES, which will be opening on Broadway, New York next Spring (04).

Singer Thom Yorke and his bandmates are hoping the ballet - choreographed by well-respected dance guru MERCE CUNNINGHAM - will then move from America to their native Britain in the autumn, where they hope to perform the music live alongside the dance.

A source close to the group says, "The show is very moving and the band are chuffed to be involved. They say they would love to perform live in London if their diary permits.

"Merce loves their music and is one of the most renowned guys in his field. This show should be very big."
