A troupe of breakdancers will perform on the Royal Opera House stage alongside the likes of Emma Bell, Jacques Imbrailo and Noah Stewart in Judith Weir's production of Miss Fortune.

B-boy crew Soul Mavericks were formed in 2005 and are the current UK National B-boy champions. They have represented the UK at the B-boy World championships five times, reaching the semi-finals in both 2010 and 2011.

Breaking News, the digital magazine focusing on B-boying culture, recently caught up with the group in Miss Fortune rehearsals to find out their impressions of working at the Royal Opera House. Visit them later in the week for a longer version of this film. The magazine is supported by The Prince's Trust.
