An underwater opera is to have its world premiere on - and below - the River Elbe in Dresden in Germany.

The performance aims to commemorate the victims of a flood disaster in Saxony 10 years ago.

After starting out on land, soprano Claudia Herr will dive into the river, wearing a breathing device and accompanied by cameras.
