The Michael Jackson musical will incorporate his music and feature choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, a prominent force in ballet who has written original works for the Royal Ballet in London as well as New York, including an adaptation based on the 1951 film An American in Paris.
The forthcoming musical will be the third stage production based on the singer, after the Cirque du Soleil-produced shows Michael Jackson One, which was launched in 2014 and now runs in Las Vegas, and Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour, which ran between 2011 and 2014.
The legendary singer died at the age of 50 from an accidental drug overdose after using an anaesthetic prescribed by his physician.
