No Arias and Graces and no knickers!

Opera buffs! strip for calender and not a knicker in sight!

We are more used to the idea of getting dressed  up if you go to the Opera but for a change the Royal opera House was full of man and women wearing not many clothes in fact stark naked all in a good cause though.   Man and women from singers to backstage staff stripped to their birthday suit to pose for a calender to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.  A worthwhile charity check it on on the link.

The calendar gives all the stars the opportunity to “lay bare more than their artistic soul”, say the Royal Opera House, adding that while it retains the Opera House’s elegant style, there’s more than a “hint of cheek”.  Oh er misses.

Cover girl of the £10 calendar is award-winning ballet dancer Sian Murphy, 30, who poses in a royal box wearing nothing but a sprinkling of diamonds and a swathe of red velvet to cover her modesty.  Sian says Her picture,  for her father, who survived cancer.

Two members of the orchestra pose with their instruments: principal harpist Emma Granger and violinist Caroline Clarke, dedicating their contribution to fellow orchestra member Keitaro Takayama, who died of cancer.

In a clever move to maximise appeal, each calendar features 12 men and 12 women, with two separate covers.  Can’s wait to see the mens calender lets hope hier is a few hotties!

Sales of the naked calendar are said to be likely to outstrip that of a Royal Ballet calendar released at the same time because in that edition, all the dancers are clothed.

The calendar sells for £10 from the Royal Opera House shop and website and, as all costs have been met from donations, all proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Go girls and boys I will be buying mine when they come out!
