A professional opera singer is "doing fine" and continuing their career after undergoing brain surgery with a twist last year.

In a 12-minute video post on YouTube this month, Ambroz Bajec-Lapajne can be seen singing Franz Schubert's 'Gute Nacht' while the operation takes place.

"I'm a professional opera, concert and choral singer that was diagnosed with a brain tumour," Bajec-Lapajne writes alongside the video.

"The neurosurgeon's advice was to do an awake craniotomy so that I could sing during the surgery in order to avoid deficits after the procedure."
