The Opera Couple

Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello are husband-and-wife opera singers. They talk with Dick about the peculiarity of their relationship, which includes competing to see who can hold the longest notes, and trying to be cast in the same productions so that they can spend time together.  


"Musetta's Waltz" from Puccini's La Boheme performed by the Andrew Kostelanetz Orchestra and " Act 1: Prelude" from Verdi's La Traviata, performed by Sir George Solti/Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
