Radiohead inspire ballet

A ballet inspired by Radiohead will air in Scotland this summer, it has been confirmed.

Stephen Petronio’s “Ride The Beast” is scheduled for performance at the Edinburgh International Festival and features a number of musical reworkings of their songs.

Opening with “Fitter Happier”, the performance features five songs from Thom and co in total, from across their career.

Explaining the production, Petronio commented: “Radiohead’s music is a brilliant investigation of achingly modern taste.

“They sail through genre and form effortlessly and passionately, and their music demands a physical response from me that by-passes reason.”

“Ride The Beast” takes place at the Scottish Ballet at the Edinburgh Playhouse on August 18+19+20.
