Ballet Dancers Do An Emotionally-Charged Interpretation Of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Freddie Mercury would be proud.

Back in 1975, the magnificent Brit rock genius Freddie Mercury crafted a song that was destined to become one of the greatest hits of our time — "Bohemian Rhapsody." 

This year, Mercury's 6-minute tune that merges ballad, opera and hard rock styles into a captivating symphony of sounds celebrates its 40th anniversary. Fans everywhere are honoring the occasion with various tributes, one of which is this dance performance by the English National Ballet.

Choreographed by James Streeter, the dance bursts with powerful leaps, twirls, and emotional embraces as it goes on to tell the story of a "poor boy" whom nobody loves.

Watch the dance video below:

"Bohemian Rhapsody means a lot to me. I guess it was the start of my dancing career. To be asked to choreograph it was amazing," Streeter told Elle.

Queen uploaded the video to its official YouTube channel where it already racked up more than 1,5 million views.
