Sean Connery, magic & opera on Star World next month

MUMBAI: Next month, Star World will air the felicitation ceremony of the original James Bond, Sir Sean Connery, with a lifetime achievement award from The American Film Institute (AFI).

The ceremony, will also have a videotaped tribute from the newest Bond, Daniel Craig. It will also showcase magic by Criss Angel Supernatural. And, on the music front, there will be an opera performance by Andrea Bochelli: Amore Under The Desert Sky.

Directors George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and actors Andy Garcia, Harrison Ford and Mike Myers were among those who feted the Scottish star.

AFI Board of Trustees chairman Sir Howard Stringer who is also Sony CEO says, "Sir Sean Connery is an international film icon. Though best remembered for creating one of the great film heroes of all time, his talents transcend typecasting, and his body of work not only stands the test of time, but illuminates a career more extraordinary than James Bond himself. Sir Sean is an artist of the highest order, and AFI is honoured to present him with its 34th Life Achievement Award."

Considered to be the most influential name in magic today, Criss Angel's visionary approach to the art escapes the confines of tradition and gives birth to a new breed of modern mysticism. Viewers can delve inside Criss Angel's world.

The Tuscan-born Andrea Bocelli seduces audiences everywhere with moving melodies and passionate performances. He is considred to have set the standard for 'crossover' classical tenors. This special was recorded in Lake Las Vegas from a concert venue that floats in the resort's signature 320-acre lake.

Bocelli will perform songs from his current CD, Amore including Autumn Leaves and It's Impossible and is joined by special guest Heather Headley in a duet of The Prayer.
