The World's Greatest Music
Katherine Jenkins showcases some of the most beautiful operatic pieces, sung by some of the world’s most brilliant voices.
Opera, like plays or novels, covers such a wide variety of subjects. It ranges from fairy stories to heroic myths, from frothy romance to tragic drama. If it’s a good laugh that you’re after, look no further than Rossini's The Barber of Seville. 'Rossini knocked out this masterpiece in just three weeks and it was an instant hit,' says Katherine. Katherine thinks the Barber works because 'at the heart of it is one of opera’s most lovable – and funny - leading men, Figaro.' Picture: Lesley Garrett as Rosina and Christopher Maltman as Figaro in a scene from English National Opera's 1998 revival of The Barber of Seville.
