A London-based group of New Zealand opera singers caught up in lockdown has come together to put on a beautiful performance in the spirit of giving something we can all enjoy and to bring in some much needed income.

The organiser of Whanau: Voices of Aotearoa, Far From Home - Julien Van Mellaerts has stayed up late and joins Jesse live from London. 

The premiere, filmed at The Royal Albert Hall, will be broadcast on RNZ Concert on Monday at 1pm. You can read more about it here. 

Here's a video of what you can expect to hear.
