Refugees take centre stage at opera

An opera company which has gained a worldwide reputation for staging its performances in unusual places is now offering a lifeline to refugees.

Birmingham Opera Company has traditionally cast its chorus from local volunteers.

Now it's extending a welcome to people fleeing countries such as Sudan. In the past decade, the company has seen 90,000 people take part in its productions.
