Chris Ofili: 'How I painted the Royal Ballet's set'
28 September 2012 Last updated at 11:52 BST
When the Turner Prize winning artist Chris Ofili was asked to design a set and costumes for the Royal Ballet's Metamorphosis: Titian 2012, he found inspiration in the story itself of a hunter who comes upon the chaste goddess Diana and her nymphs bathing in a sacred grove.
The goddess punishes the voyeur by transforming him into a stag, and he is torn to pieces by his own hounds.
Chris Ofili talks to Alan Yentob about his project.
