The Opera Hour – series 2/episode 31

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes – politics, power, greed, the abominable, magic, lust, comedy.
Today he visits the Royal College of Music’s Museum of Instruments to chat to its curator Jenny Nex and sample her various harpsichords; while the counter tenor Randall Scotting sings for us, underneath the portrait of the great operatic castrato Farinelli.
