Broadway has a long history of welcoming opera stars to its stages: think Renée Fleming in Carousel, Teresa Stratas in Rags, and both Paulo Szot and Ezio Pinza in South Pacific. Several theatre artists, on both sides of the Atlantic, have also lent their talents to more operatic compositions. Watch some of these performers let their voices soar in tunes from both the worlds of opera and Broadway.
