Embed and breakfast man: Broken Social Scene

Unions of pop and opera aren't entirely well-starred; Macca turning up with his Liddypool Oratorio Wacker; Elton John wearing a wig; that Passengers thing with U2 and Pavarotti.

Here's something a bit more successful: Broken Social Scene playing a benefit with, and for, the Canadian Opera Company.

You'd have thought that the only musicians in worse need of cash than opera musicians would be indie musicians, which makes the gesture even more generous.
