Opera quartet Amore bumped into pop superstars One Direction last night, suggesting a possible future classical collaboration with Harry Styles.
A host of stars from the pop and classical worlds alike took London's O2 Arena by storm yesterday for the Brit Awards 2013. Fresh from their on stage performance, One Direction's Harry Styles met one half of opera quartet Amore backstage, who suggested an operatic collaboration with the band.
Tenor and bass David and Peter tweeted a picture of themselves with 1D member Harry Styles: "Loved meeting Harry Styles last night at BRITAwards. 'Operatic Collaboration' with One Direction soon. #TrueGent."
Amore's mezzo-soprano Victoria said she enjoyed One Direction's cover of One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks) from the audience. The band, who won the Global Success Award at last night's ceremony, performed alongside a range of celebrated pop artists including Robbie Williams, Emeli Sandé, and Muse.
