Summary A contemporary take on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, with music from Madam Butterfly, Don Giovanni and La Traviata, performed at one of London's train stations with the help of a flashmob. An engaged couple, Mike (sung by tenor Nicholas Ransley) and Sally (soprano Rachel Nicholls), come unstuck over Mike's obsession with football. The station forms the backdrop to the action as Sally decides whether or not to run away with a handsome stranger (baritone Rodney Clarke) or stay with Mike. Taking place live in a mainline London train station, this opera features the BBC Concert Orchestra and a 'flashmob' chorus consisting of members of the public called together by text messages sent earlier in the day
