The former Beatle has collaborated with the New York City Ballet for the production, entitled Ocean's Kingdom. It will open in the city on September 22, at the company's fall gala, reports the New York Times.

McCartney cas composed the score for the production, while composer John Wilson has helped with the final orchestration.

The ballet's plot will be a love story, and lasts around 45-50 minutes. It is divided into four acts, with a cast of 40-45 including four or five main roles.

The singer has said that the plot sees the daughter of an Ocean King character falling in love with the brother of an Earth King character. "You’ll have to see whether the couple make it," he said.

The show is expected to come to London after it debuts in New York.
