Believe it or not -- oh, live crazy and believe it -- there'll be a classical music edition on week four of "Dancing with the Stars." That's early April, by the way. Show is shipping in a 38-piece orchestra to handle a number of pieces, all doubtless well-known (you know, like "A Little Night Music," which is the Muzak of the classical music world, or the card song or gypsy song from "Carmen," or Nessun Dorma, etc., etc.) A full-size orchestra, by the way, runs about a hundred members.
And this: There will be an "American" edition the next week in April. This'll be all-patriotic-songs edition, like "The Stars and Stripes Forever," and so forth. "DWTS" has never done classical before, and the dances -- wild guesses anyone? -- will all be waltzes.
