Wild, wild, wild musical event -- but if you went with it, you really had a great time. Like nothing else I have ever heard/;seen The Philharmonic perform,. Good seat thanks to Goldstar and great way to start the Memorial Day Weekend!

Description

 In one of the signature events of the New York cultural season, Alan Gilbert and the Philharmonic give the much-anticipated, fully-staged New York premiere of György Ligeti’s satirical “anti-anti-opera.”

Meet Gepopo, Prince Go-Go, Piet the Pot, and their fellow inhabitants of Brueghelland, who’ve just been told by the devil that the world ends at midnight. In a carnival-like kaleidoscope of sight and sound, Ligeti (whose Atmosphères_ and other music is heard in the film _2001) tells their story with some of the most strikingly brilliant music he ever composed.
