From 1 October 2009, Singapore Airlines
passengers will be able to enjoy the airline’s latest version of
KrisWorld, its inflight entertainment system.
KrisWorld, available in all classes and
offering more than 1000 on-demand options, is fitted on the
airline’s Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A380, Airbus A340-500 and
Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
The new ‘Live’ concert features will be one of
two additions in the “Stage Performances” category, which will
kick off with recent years’ concert performances by Christina
Aguilera, Barry Manilow, Take That and The Pussycat Dolls, in
addition to Aaron Kwok and Sarah Brightman.
The other addition will be stand-up comedies,
featuring performances by well-known comedy kings Rowan Atkinson
and D.L. Hughley.
The “Stage Performances” category will continue to
feature recent operas, musicals, orchestral performances, and
ballet and modern dance. A refreshed lineup in October will
include the inspiring Mendelssohn Gala 2009 orchestral performance
held in Leipzig in February 2009 and Richard Strauss’ most popular
opera, Der Rosenkavalier.
In addition, a new “Classic Comedies”
channel in the “Comedy” category of the TV section will feature
some of the best evergreen comedies from each decade, starting
with The Black Adder, followed by Fawlty Towers, Friends and I
Love Lucy, in addition to the current award-winning sitcoms.
The airline’s KrisWorld inflight entertainment magazine will also
take on a refreshed look come October 2009 with an improved layout
and re-organised sections to make browsing that little bit easier.
