The Opera Chic blog earlier reported on the NYC press conference held by the New York Philharmonic last month, which was held to announce their foray into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea as the first American orchestra to ever make music within the country currently being pwned by Kim Jong-U. B. Illin.
The NY Phil orchestra announced yesterday that the culminating concert of their DPRK appearance, which is to be held on February 26, 2008 from the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre (which comes after a two-day musical festival in Pyongyang with Maestro Maazel), will be broadcast live. Oh noes! On High Def?? Free Restylane 4 every1!! All of Europe gets the green light, with the concert streaming on EuroArts and ARTE France (among other providers), while details concerning the USA broadcast will come at a later time. The program will include the North Korea and USA national anthems, Prelude to Act III of Lohengrin, Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, and Gershwin's An American in Paris.
This will surely please The Jonger, as according to his official biography, not only was he born on a mountainside under a double rainbow, but he's apparently already gifted the world with the original composition of six operas...that he somehow managed to write in between swigging cognac, fluffling his hair, and polishing his platform orthopedic shoes.
