Yes, it's really true. Someone in Covent Gardenland has seen That Film With Helen Mirren and decided it's about time the Royal Opera House got their collective kit off too.
A 2009 calendar featuring members (hehe) of the ROH in the altogether will be available from the Royal Opera House shop in November.
And as the calendar has been shot by a chorus 'member' rather than David 'NSFW' McVicar, the mighty organ, skin flute, pink oboe, silent trombone and related operatic equipment will be artistically concealed. Teasers!
***update*** look here for more details, including photos from the calendar
