We recently caught up with Bryan Hymel ahead of the opening of The Royal Opera's new production of Les Troyens.

The American tenor is singing the role of Énée - a challenging part on account of the opera's length and the slightly unusual register for a tenor. As well as giving us his thoughts on the epic staging, Bryan also told us how he has prepared for the part.

The production will be streamed online to the UK, and available to watch on TV via Mezzo in mainland Europe.

Les Troyens runs until 11 July and - although the run is sold out - a limited number of day tickets are available from 10am at the Box Office on the day of each performance. The one exception to this is Sunday, when Day Tickets are on sale from 11am.

    Why haven't you done an interview with Antonacci yet? She has received ecstatic reviews in the press and is one of the greatest singers alive today!
