The Opera Hour – series 2/episode 14

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes.

Today’s guests are Daisy Evans and the team behind Silent Opera, who talk about their new production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo at Trinty Buoy Wharf in Docklands which involves wearing headphones and experiencing opera in a rather intimate fashion, not unlike a silent disco. Plus the continued fascination with the Orpheus myth and if opera audiences really are getting younger.

Originally broadcast on 24th January 2013.
