Fashion expert, award-winning TV presenter, author and all round national treasure Gok Wan made his mark by giving women the confidence to appreciate their bodies and brings out the inner-diva in everyone. Gok has a passion for opera – the music, the drama, the costumes, the spectacle – and above all: The Diva! From La Boheme to Les Miserables – share in Gok’s passion with his personal selection of the world’s most beautiful arias, sung by opera’s greatest divas!

“I think I first discovered opera in the 1980s,” Gok says. “I remember watching a film called The Hunger, with Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie. It was about vampires, and it had this song in it, The Flower Duet by Delibes, which I just absolutely loved. My ear immediately became sensitive to it.”
