Opera's Mr and Mrs bid to make opera accessible

Opera singers Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello have no trouble singing romantic duets together on stage because they are husband and wife off stage.

The American soprano and tenor met at music school and will soon be seen on the Royal Opera House's stage in La Traviata.

They have also just made their first album together and have told BBC Breakfast about how they became opera lovers.
