The communist state showed the video at a celebration of the country’s founder, Kim Il Sung.
With a military choir singing a rousing anthem a video plays showing CGI North Korean missiles blasting off.
As the soloist reached his crescendo the missiles hit America, wiping out a city.
In a chilling final scene, an American flag flutters over graves before being replaced by a North Korean flag.
The stage production took place in Pynongyang on Sunday, where the country’s leader, and Kim Il Sung’s grandson, Kim Jung-un, looked on.
North Korea’s state media channel, KCNA, said: “The Dear Supreme Leader waved back to them and congratulated the artistes on their successful performance.”
The show comes as the USA threatens to deal with North Korea and its nuclear weapons program unilaterally. Vice President Mike Pence said “the era of strategic patience” is over.
North Korea has threatened nuclear war if it is attacked.
