Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes – politics, power, greed, the abominable, magic, lust, comedy. Today: Richard looks at how opera has both welcomed and vilified immigrants and those who came from outside. Composer Guy Harries talks about his new opera ‘Two Caravans,’ detailing the exploits of migrant workers picking strawberries in Kent.
