Billie Robson and Simone Ibbett-Brown will be singing Sous le dôme épais/'The Flower Duet' (Lakmé) by Delibes.

The "Flower Duet" (French: Duo des fleurs / Sous le dôme épais) is a very easily recognizable duet that is often used in commercials. The famous duet for sopranos from Léo Delibes' opera Lakmé, was first performed in Paris in 1883. The duet takes place between Lakmé, the daughter of a Brahmin priest and her servant Mallika as they gather flowers by a river in Act 1 of the three-act opera.
