Even if you’ve never stepped foot in an opera house this show will arouse any taste.
The songs are a backdrop to contemporary life. Familiar from movies, TV series, advertisements, sporting events, and even cartoons, including the iconic Nessun Dorma from ‘Turandot’ (Soccer World Cup theme) to the heart-melting Flower Duet from ‘Lakmé’ (British Airways Ad.).
