Antonio Pappano, Quintessential, Cosi Fan Tutte at ENO, Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil

With conductor Antonio Pappano, ENO director Phelim McDermott, Claude-Michel Schonberg with Alain Boublil, plus live music from Quintessential Sackbut and Cornett Ensemble.

Sean Rafferty's guests include conductor Sir Antonio Pappano, as he brings his Santa Cecilia orchestra from Italy to the UK for performances of Verdi's dramatic Requiem. Director of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte at English National Opera, Phelim McDermott talks about the new production, with live excerpts from soprano Mary Bevan and baritone Roderick Williams. And the musical theatre composer Claude-Michel Schonberg and lyricist Alain Boublil - the duo behind hits such as Les Misérables and Marguerite - discuss the new production of Miss Saigon, returning to London's West End in the musical's 25th anniversary year.

Plus, live music from the Quintessential Sackbut and Cornett Ensemble ahead of their concert at London's Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
