Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe release the music for their first ever full-length ballet, The Most Incredible Thing, through Parlophone Records. The ballet is a collaboration with choreographer Javier De Frutos and Britain"s leading contemporary dance theatre, Sadler"s Wells. Based on the Hans Christian Anderson story of the same title. Tennant and Lowe proposed Andersen"s story as the basis for a new ballet to Sadler"s Wells in London in 2007 after a friend, the then Royal Ballet principal, Ivan Putrov, asked Neil Tennant if Pet Shop Boys would consider writing a piece of music for him to dance to at Sadler"s Wells. Coincidentally a couple of days later, Chris Lowe suggested to Neil Tennant that "The Most Incredible Thing" would make an excellent narrative for a ballet and, inspired by this synchronicity, they approached Sadler"s Wells with the project. The following year Javier De Frutos was chosen as the choreographer. The story is about a competition in a mythical kingdom where the King announces that whoever invents the most incredible thing will win the hand of the Princess in marriage and half of the Kingdom. What follows is creative, destructive but ultimately happy.Released late March 2011.Track Listing CD1:1. Prologue2. The grind3. The challenge4. Help me5. Risk6. Physical jerks7. The competition8.
