On Christmas Eve, BBC Radio 4 will broadcast a special recording of Start the Week, the weekly discussion programme presented by Andrew Marr.

The show was pre-recorded last week in the Royal Opera House's Crush Room and saw Andrew Marr joined by star tenor Rolando Villazón, currently performing the role of Rodolfo in La bohème; Anna Nicole composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, vocal expert Mary King and neuro-psychiatrist Professor Michael Trimble. The guests discussed the power of the human voice and our reactions to it.

The show, which will be broadcast at 9am and repeated at 9.30pm, will include a musical contribution from the Jette Parker Young Artists.

Find out more about other Royal Opera House broadcasts over the festive period, including Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Plácido Domingo’s Operalia Winners on television, The Ring Cycle on radio and The Nutcracker streamed on the Guardian website.
