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. In this clip, we encounter Gaga-inspired cos­tumes and per­for­mance as we watch Gepopo, chief of the secret ser­vice, telling Prince Go Go about the pan­ic break­ing out in the streets…

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