A live feed of concerts at one of London's top opera venues is to be broadcast in Edinburgh as part of attempts to bring art to a wider audience. The big screen on Festival Square will relay a live performance of Madame Butterfly at the Royal Opera House on Monday.

The screen will then show Royal Opera's performance of Cinderella from the iconic Covent Garden venue on July 13th.

There will also be a live performance by top Edinburgh opera group Aria Alba before Monday's screening.
