Soprano Alex Penda is en route to London on a rescue mission, for which her friends (young or otherwise) are doubtless giving thanks.

(This scene from Les Vêpres Siciliennes at the Teatro San Carlo, May 2011, in fact does not feature La Penda, but rather Rachele Stanisci, who is also in the mix at the Royal Opera House. See in the comments below for a clip of Penda singing the “Bolero.”)
