In 2018, choreographer William Forsythe created Playlist (Track 1, 2) for English National Ballet. Juxtaposing ballet classicism and athleticism with the beats of neo-soul and house music, it left the crowd whooping and wanting to join in. The ballet was later expanded in 2019 for Boston Ballet and was titled Playlist (EP). Playlist (EP) returns to English National Ballet for the 2022 Season.
