The English National Opera and Sky Arts commissioned three short films for songs performed at the ENO - from Werner Herzog, Sam Taylor-Wood and Dougal Wilson. And surprise, surprise, Dougal made the one that's a funny, hugely entertaining silent comedy inspired by the fizzing rollercoaster of Largo Al Factotum - the familiar aria from Rossini's <em>The Barber of Seville</em>- featuring our young apprentice hero and a recalcitrant, increasingly monstrous hairball. It's clearly the one most likely to transmit the glory of opera to anyone who can't tell their Puccini from their Bizet. Pure hairy joy in fact.
