Opera on the Underground.

“Buskers,” or subway performers, were all over the Tube. We saw FIRST-RATE guitar, jazz and classical performers. Now sanctioned by the TFL, (Transport for London) buskers can officially collect money, and they have to be good…In fact, they must audition to get a spot on the Tube. There are actually some big-name performers who have done a stint in Underground busking. Learn more about them here. We saw this baritone one day on the Piccadilly line and we were so enthralled that we sat down to listen. Later, I went to the trouble of tracking him down, we’re now in touch, and I have learned that he’s sung at Carnegie Hall. Fantastic. Sorry the videos are not shot well, this was the first time I had ever tried “movie” mode from my camera.
