STAGE TUBE: Alan Gilbert on Rehearsing Le Grand Macabre

Music Director Alan Gilbert discusses the New York Philharmonic's fully-staged production of Ligeti's "Le Grand Macabre" after an early rehearsal at New 42nd Street Studios. Visit http://nyphil.org/macabre for information on the New York premiere, May 27-29, 2010.

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: A Space Odyssey) tells their story with some of the most strikingly brilliant music he ever composed.
