Sure, Paul McCartney knows how to write an enduring rock song, but can he make a classic ballet? That will be answered tonight when Ocean's Kingdom, with music and an original libretto by McCartney, debuts at New York City Ballet. Designing the costumes for his underwater kingdom is his daughter Stella McCartney, her first time making pieces for the theater. Ballet master-in-chief Peter Martins choreographs the struggle between McCartney's noble sea creatures and the bad guys on land.
