Mild spoilers -Series in compact form for American audiences
24 June 2005 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

PBS has been showing a shortened, just under two-hour special version of this series, where you get to meet a group of people who have the dream of singing opera, but have not had the opportunity. They are put through intensive auditions and training, and at the end, someone gets to star in a real opera performance.

It was shown on many PBS stations on Thursday, June 23, 2005. The show had just started when I turned on the TV to put in a movie DVD, but 60 seconds of this compelling program was enough to convince my husband & me to watch this one first.

The most ordinary looking people have the most extraordinary voices and ambitions and backgrounds. You learn their life stories, hear some wonderful singing, and wish every one could win the chance to sing; the judges had a terrible time deciding! After you see the show- Google the names of the winners and you can see what has happened to them in the two-year interval since the original series was broadcast in England.
