The Queen's Jubilee Gala: Live From Buckingham Palace (#2708)

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, the historic staterooms and gardens of Buckingham Palace will be opened to the public for a series of spectacular celebratory concerts. With ceremonies and pageants taking place across the land, GREAT PERFORMANCES will have its cameras ready for a live broadcast of the opening day festivities from Her Majesty the Queen's Golden Jubilee Weekend. Featuring a host of England's most celebrated performing artists and ensembles, the afternoon's repertoire will be drawn from centuries of British music - from classics by Purcell, Handel, Elgar and Britten to popular favorites by Gilbert and Sullivan, Noel Coward and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
