Rosalind Plowright has performed with the Three Tenors, received an OBE for her services to music and sung in opera houses all over the world.
But now the singer is embarking on a new kind of challenge.
Despite 35 years in the business, Rosalind has never released an album, let alone one that is performed in six different languages - until now.
She spoke to BBC Breakfast about her life in music so far and the fresh challenges that lie ahead.
