Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world, featuring an opera double-bill.

With director Renaud Doucet and soprano Anne Sophie Duprels discussing Scottish Opera's forthcoming production of Massenet's Manon - the first time the opera has been seen in Scotland.

And ahead of Opera North's new adaptation of Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio, Sean talks to director Tim Hopkins and soprano Kate Valentine.
