A programme of operatic highlights featuring some of the most exciting productions from around Europe in 2010.
It includes the Royal Opera's Simon Boccanegra starring Placido Domingo in his first baritone role, Jose van Dam's farewell performance as Don Quixote from La Monnaie in Brussels, and star soprano Diana Damrau singing Mozart in Barcelona.
There is also a glimpse of the new opera house in Oslo and two radically different productions - Birmingham Opera's Othello, staged by Graham Vick in a disused factory in Birmingham, and a spectacular version of Moses and Aaron from Germany.
Verdi's Rigoletto provides the climax with an extract from the live film version broadcast in September from Mantua, with Domingo in the title role.
