In addition to music of Gorecki and Glass, the programme includes Dream Sequence which is set to songs sung by Dean Martin. As a kid in my generation I was raised on the song & comedy team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. Dino was one of my mom's favorite vocalists; every year around the holidays I watch MOONSTRUCK which opens with Dean Martin's rendition of "That's Amore!" I'm curious to see what Lydia has cooked up.
