Was there a group in the recent past that involved opera and ukulele?

Not-quite eponysterical. But pretty cool.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performed at the Sydney Opera House, but it wasn't opera. Also, from a while ago: In 2008, the group performed Dreamspiel, a ukulele opera, composed by George Hinchliffe and Michelle Carter for the Grimeborn Festival at London's Arcola Theatre.

The Durham Ukulele Orchestra may also have done something with an opera connection, but I wouldn't know.
