Flashmob opera in a supermarket: La Rondine
The Opera Holland Park Chorus staged a flashmob performance of this lush piece from Puccini's La Rondine. [Watch the poor checkout girl's face, she doesn't know what to do!] Hummed along in a chorus of this very tune during last year's Biggar Little Festival. To my shame, I only ever managed to learn the final phrase: 'Con Fiore!'
