Socks on screen as opera opens
Some people may think legwear and opera do not naturally go hand in hand but one brave young company has thrust them into the limelight they so richly deserve by casting two grey socks as the lovers in its new production.

The Perfect Match is a made-for-TV film commissioned by Bravo, which follows the beautiful and heartwarming tale of two single grey socks who believe they are alone in the world and will never discover the companionship they crave.

It was recently aired at a Tapestry New Opera Works event and John Terauds - a classical music critic for the US publication the Star - reported that the five-minute film was packed with creativity.

He said it was a "funny and charming love story about two single grey socks who can finally end their lives of loneliness". Who knew socks suffered?

Tapestry's marketing and communications director Anna commented in her blog that the film showcases the "universal search for companionship".
