A NIGHT AT THE OPERA HOUSE

The star became the first contemporary artist to play the prestigous venue - and she managed to get it all on tape...

Bjork is planning to release her recent concert from the LONDON ROYAL OPERA HOUSE as a live DVD.

Bjork became the first ever contemporary rock artist to play in the rarefied environs of theRoyal Opera House when she appeared there last month (December 16).

The Icelandic star was joined by a 40-piece orchestra and a choir from Greenland, as well as San Franciscan duo Matmos.

According to a posting on the star’s official website, www.bjork.com, the show will be released as a “circular DVD later in the year with the audio remixed to perfection”.

Prior to that, the show is to be broadcast on the new digital channel BBC 4 in the UK on March 12.
