Sony Classical to release Danny Elfman’s first ballet score, ‘Rabbit & Rogue’

Sony Classical has today announced the release of four time Academy Award® nominated composer Danny Elfman’s first ballet score, Rabbit & Rogue (Limited Deluxe Edition), on June 30.

This Limited Deluxe Edition offers a variety of insights into the production of the ballet score, including a bonus DVD with an exclusive interview with Danny Elfman.

Commenting on the release, Danny Elfman said:

“The creation of this ballet score was done hand in hand with a remarkable woman, Twyla Tharp. Every note, every beat. She encouraged me, challenged me, cajoled me, and even fed me. It was one of the best times I have ever had working. For her trust in me I will be forever grateful. I dedicate this recording to her.”

Rabbit & Rogue features a mischievous pair of principal men in a disconnected, virtual world. They encounter two couples and their supporting ensembles – one tumultuous, one harmonious.

Rabbit & Rogue was given its World Premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House, NY in June 2008, danced by Herman Cornejo, Ethan Stiefel, Paloma Herrera, Gennadi Saveliev, Gillian Murphy and David Hallberg.
