This moment brought the full WNO Chorus, WNO Orchestra and the fabulous Hollywood actor and singer, Luke Evans together to celebrate Pride with our very special rendition of Queen’s Who Wants to Live Forever.
PINK NEWS – Luke Evans is proving that no one can celebrate Pride like Gaston, joining the Welsh National Opera for an emotional cover of Queen’s “Who Wants to Live Forever”.
As is the case in much of the world, in-person Pride celebrations and concerts are both off the menu in Wales this year, with the out actor and members of the WNO Chorus and WNO Orchestra instead performing virtually while decked out in rainbows.
The video, which utilises what we can only describe as wizardry to hauntingly digitally superimpose the performers over Welsh landmarks, was released to coincide with what would have been the culmination of the Pride Cymru festival, which was forced online this year due to coronavirus.
Luke Evans joins Welsh National Opera for ‘uplifting and fitting’ Pride celebration.
Evans tweeted: “The Welsh National Opera and I have collaborated on a very special recording of Queen hit ‘Who Wants to Live Forever’. It features 80-plus people who all recorded their contributions from home.”
