Mahler: The Movie
Coming soon to a theater near you: Mahler's 8th Symphony. Performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, and a chorus of more than 1,300 people (including 400 children), conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. Here's Gustavo with LA Phil President Deborah Borda admiring the full-page ad in the New York Times promoting the theater broadcast. Tickets here. The concert will be preceeded by a 30-40 minute documentary about the LA Phil's trip to Caracas. The film crew has been furiously shooting and editing. Should be fun to watch!
