Making Opera

From #OperaPassion Day: 

Eight opera companies from the UK celebrate the power and emotion of opera in an eight hour live stream. The event coincides with the V&A’s major exhibition Opera: Passion, Power and Politics - a spectacular and vivid journey through 400 years of operatic and European history - which runs from 30 September 2017 until 25 February 2018.

Enjoy the fabulous might of the Anvil Chorus from Verdi’s Il trovatore, and the beautiful Easter Hymn from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, sung by soprano soloist Sarah-Jane Lewis and members of the Royal Opera Chorus, led by Chorus Director William Spaulding. The chorus will invite members of the public to sing-along with them beside the station’s iconic statue of Sir John Betjeman.
