Earlier, we posted about the lack of black people in the UK ballet. But here in the US, OutKast's Antwan "Big Boi" Patton has collaborated with choreographer Lauri Stallings on a production called "big." The ballet is a "marriage of artistic aesthetics" that will, at one point, feature Verdi's "La Traviata" intertwined with "Morris Brown," a cut from OutKast's "Idlewild" soundtrack. "It's definitely one of the funkiest hybrids I've ever seen," Big Boi said. Click here for a video sneak peek; the show opens tonight at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. [CNN]
