The World's Greatest Music
Karlheinz Stockhausen's last unperformed opera, Mittwoch aus Licht, has finally been put on stage by the Birmingham Opera Company. Utilising a cast of over 150 performers and lasting over five hours, the opera's highlights include live camels, a string quartet in helicopters and a lot of paint.
If you look closely, you can make out the members of Stockhausen's infamous helicopter string quartet, suspended (for rehearsal purposes) from the ceiling. The actual performance features a video link from four real helicopters flying outside the venue.
