Opera: Passion, Power and Politics
Sponsored by Societe Generale · In collaboration with Royal Opera House
Commuters and opera fans will get the chance to not only experience The Royal Opera’s world beating chorus – but sing with them too! Inspired by the operas featured in Opera: Passion, Power and Politics, enjoy the fabulous might of the Anvil Chorus from Verdi’s Il trovatore, then the beautiful Easter Hymn from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana sung by soloist Sarah-Jane Lewis and members of the chorus. Then, it is your chance to join in the fun as we ask the whole of the station to sing out with The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves (Va, pensiero) from Verdi’s Nabucco.
Join us by Sir John Betjeman’s statue as we slow down the rush hour with opera at its best. If you can’t make it catch us live on the V&A, Royal Opera House, and BBC Facebook pages.
