Singer Madonna on the day of his 60th birthday published the full video of the surprise performance at the annual ball of the costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum in new York. 13-minute video appeared on the official Youtube channel of the artist.
The MET Gala traditionally held in may. This year it was dedicated to the connection of fashion with religion. Madonna was the only one who spoke at the event. She appeared on the stairs in the great hall of the Museum, accompanied by a few dozen back-up singers, dressed in monastic robes and sang in the style of Gregorian chant, and then appeared in the form of Joan of Arc, going to the execution.
In the track list of rooms entered one of the early hits of Madonna Like A Prayer, her new song Beautiful Game and a cover version of the Leonard Cohen hit Hallelujah. In the final part of the room the singer was accompanied by two dancers, a man and a woman dressed as Catholic priests.
Note that the installation of the video were used fragments of paintings and sculptural works of religious themes, as well as the architectural elements inherent in European cathedrals.
Recall that play on religious themes – one of the characteristic features of Madonna.
