Gaga-Inspired Opera

It’s getting hard to dismiss the cultural influence of Lady Gaga, especially when you see the Gaga phenomenon inspiring György Ligeti’s satirical “anti-anti-opera” Le Grand Macabre staged at The New York Philharmonic this summer.

On a related note, don’t miss Christopher Walken reading Gaga’s “Poker Face”.
