At the PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL what is the name of the opera song that they always play during the sweep?

Question by crispyside: At the PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL what is the name of the opera song that they always play during the sweep?
In between afternoon and evening shows at the Philly Folk Fest, a dramatic opera song plays while a line of volunteers dressed like vikings and other assorted freaks trudges along to kick everyone out and clean the hillside amphitheatre. What is the name of the song?

Best answer:

Answer by Philadelphia Folksong Society
It’s a great song. Thought I oft forget the name. For this one, I went to David Baskin, who chaired Festival for over a decade. He gave me more than an answer:

“Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff
It’s more of a cantata, not an opera, although there is a ballet set to it.

Lot’s of use for the opening in commercials. Used this past week for a video montage of Roger Federer during Wimbledon.

Thanks David. Hope to see you all at this year’s Philadelphia Folk Festival August 14-16!

Why is Beijing Opera, shadow puppets and the Lantern Festival important to China?

Question by bradwelljackson: Why is Beijing Opera, shadow puppets and the Lantern Festival important to China?
In China, the people are losing their interest in Beijing Opera, shadow puppets, and traditional holidays such as the Lantern Festival. I have been told that, if China wants to get rid of these things, then there is really no loss to China. What if China is happier without these things? Shouldn’t we just let it go and not fret over it? Or is it true that China will lose something important if they do? What, in fact, will they lose that is important if they just get rid of these things?

Best answer:

Answer by zerious
with 1.4 billion people there bound to be someone wont let go traditions.

Hey guys : ) This video is DIFFERENT than any of the others that i’ve done. I’m sharing with you an unbelieveable Texas highschool football story that I know will touch your hearts and is making headlines across the nation. You can google ‘one heart bowl” to see for yourselves!!! Not only that, but there’s a MOVIE now being made about this very special football match up!! It’s called ONEHEART www.oneheartmovie.com I know it sounds strange, but go look at the ONEHEART website BEFORE you watch my video. You’ll know why after you do… Anyways, this is such a remarkable story (and you saw it first here!!!) that Cody Lindley from Hannah Montana and Hoot, NFL Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Wade Phillips, Dallas Cowboys Tight End Jasen Witten, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Jon Kitna, NFL Patriots Defensive Tackle Devin Wyman, Screenwriter and Prison Break’s Lane Garrison, as well as all the news channels were there… In the video I try to give you a sense of the excitment around the OneHeart Bowl and let you see the NFL stars that were there, as well as see Cody Lindley who I got to hang with a little bit, he is GREAT !!! Enjoy and I’ll be watching for you… xoxoxox Hunter
