Hard rock star goes AC/DC with ballet score
By Maurice Chittenden for The Times


IT IS less head-banger, more Nutcracker. Brian Johnson, the gravel-voiced singer with the hard rock group AC/DC, has composed an orchestral piece of music that is being developed for the stage as both a ballet and a West End musical.
Johnson, 55, began writing Helen of Troy as a distraction from performing such heavy metal anthems as Given the Dog a Bone and Rock’n’Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution.

The singer, famous for never removing his cap in public, says he got the idea while sitting bored through a production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats.
