The New York Philharmonic recently presented an innovative production of Ligeti‘s Le Grand Macabre. To accompany this brilliant show, the NY Phil’s marketing department put together a series of behind-the-scenes flip cam videos. So many times we wonder what it takes to put together the wonderful concerts we attend, and thankfully, the New York Phil has given us a backstage pass via YouTube.
They say the show will be back in 2012, and I can’t wait to see it.
Here are a few highlights from the flip cam series, along with a couple videos from the Alan Gilbert + Death set.
Alan Gilbert and Death play Guitar Hero. Hilarious!
Maybe they’ll create another riot?
Set and prop building — very entertaining!
