The life and death of Jade Goody in opera

And The Crowd Wept is an opera based on the life and death of Jade Goody.

The former Big Brother contestant died in 2009 at the age of 27, after a very public battle with cervical cancer.

Her story and the stories which appeared in the tabloids before her death have inspired Afsanah Grey to write the piece.

She has been talking to BBC Radio 4's Rebecca Jones.
