Jeong Ae-Ree is launching her own opera company and is inviting YOU to take part! Exciting news this is indeed. The company is called New Opera Singapore and will stage Donizetti's beloved comedy L'elisir  d'amore. Here's more information :

As it is, the unintentionally controversial soprano is using her unfortunate recent past to garner early hype for the company, landing a Sunday Times feature that will hopefully lead to more funding and sponsors.
