Presented by Sean Rafferty. With conductor Mark Elder and soprano Elina Garanca on Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi at the Royal Opera House, plus soprano Anne Sofie von Otter.

Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world.

Soprano Anne Sofie von Otter talks about her debut at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall in a Nordic programme with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra. The concert includes the UK premiere of Songs by Swedish composer Rolf Martinsson. She also discusses her new disc of Bach.

Conductor Mark Elder and mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca join Sean ahead of the Royal Opera House's revival of their classic production by Pier Luigi Pizzi of Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi, which also features soprano Anna Netrebko.
