Pirouettes like Jagger: inside the unlikely Rolling Stones ballet
Mick Jagger and his ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick hosted the US premiere of their ballet, soundtracked by Rolling Stones songs
“I hope you’re going to enjoy this wonderful, new ballet. And the music, of course.”
That was part of the tongue-in-cheek audio-only introduction courtesy of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, unveiling his and partner Melanie Hamrick’s ballet inspired by the music of the rocker’s band. Dubbed Porte Rogue, it had its North American premiere at New York’s David H Koch Theater at Lincoln Center on Thursday night.
