Which star from the world of pop will prove to be an opera maestro?
Popstar to Operastar is a brand new series in which best-selling recording artists discover if they’ve got what it takes to perform as opera divas. Mentored by classical hit-singer Katherine Jenkins and famed tenor Rolando Villazon, the eight contestants will be trained to perform world-famous opera songs.
Not only will the celebs have to learn to sing in a completely different style, they’ll also have to master a whole new language!
After their performances the pop stars will be critiqued by a panel made up of their mentors Katherine and Rolando and two critics. Yes, award-winning rock musician Meat Loaf will join TV presenter and Classic FM radio host Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to tell the contestants exactly what they think.
