The four-episode series, which was originally broadcast on Channel Four in 2003, starts with the search across England for contestants. Six finalists are chosen, and are coached in the various techniques: vocal, physical, dramatic: necessary for opera performance. Finally, the show follows the two winners through their operatic debut.
Over 2,500 applied to sing in front of a group of opera professionals, in the hopes of being chosen for the show.
