A surprise in a London Foodhall

A great surprise was served up at the John Lewis Foodhall in London by Waitrose, a chain of British luxury supermarkets. After planting five secret opera singers, who were disguised as casual shoppers and store staff amongst the groceries, a staged impromptu Opera in the food aisles ensued.

"Funiculì, Funiculà" is the song being sung, which is a famous Neapolitan / Italian song that was written in 1880, with lyrics by journalist Peppino Turco set to music by composer Luigi Denza. It was composed to commemorate the opening of the first funicular cable car on Mount Vesuvius.
