22/08/2011 Garden Opera Company, David Zinman

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

A selection of the cast from Garden Opera join Petroc in the studio and perform live ahead of their double bill of Ruggero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci and Mozart's The Impresario at Regents Park, London. Garden Opera prides itself in producing performances that are bursting with integrity and innovation, that tears Opera away from the stuffy confines of producing houses and - quite literally - breathes fresh air into the genre's best loved pieces.

Petroc talks to conductor David Zinman, one of the world's finest and most respected conductors. David recently renewed his contract with the Tonhalle Orchestra until 2014 and conducts this orchestra in concerts at both the BBC Proms and Edinburgh International Festival.
