Gangnam Style: finally listenable as an opera
Theatrics and tragedy just about sums up a satisfying opera. Which makes it fitting that in Slovenia, Gangnam Style has been turned into an opera piece. Fact is, Gangnam Style is still in our face everywhere. That is tragedy. Comedian musician Tilen Artač — who was part of the Radio Ga-Ga comic troupe — lent some gravity to the tune by performing his tenor duties with sporadic hopping, while Jure Godler performed on the timpani and did the orchestral arrangement. This happened at the Rotary Charity Concert Ljubljana in 2012.
