News: Pet Shop Boys write ballet

The Golden Idol is not really a news blog but we will post unusual, appropriate items that come our way.

The Pet Shop Boys are the most successful British musical duo in history, having sold over 100 million records worldwide. The pair specialize in electronic dance music but they have just been commissioned to write a ballet. The work, based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen, will be performed next year at Sadler's Wells, London.

You can read the full story here.
