Pretty Yende: Bringing opera into pop culture

We meet one of the most sought-after sopranos on the planet. After appearing in major productions around the world, South African singer Pretty Yende is performing a modern, social-media infused version of La Traviata at Paris's prestigious Opéra Garnier. She's on a mission to make classical music more accessible to people from diverse backgrounds and bring opera into pop culture. She joins us in the studio to tell us more.


Also, French electronica institution M83 and American pop-punk legends Blink-182 prove they’re still going strong with new records.
