Hear the next generation of operatic superstars in this collaboration between the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Irish National Opera.
The INO studio singers and conductor Sinead Hayes have just finished an intensive year-long programme of masterclasses and performances as part of the inaugural INO Studio. Now they take centre stage with the RTÉ CO at the National Concert Hall for a very special gala evening.
The programme is packed with glorious arias and ensembles from celebrated operas Carmen, Manon, Roméo et Juliette, L’elisir d’amore, La Cenerentola and more. And to finish, the Dialogue of the Two Queens from Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, where royal insults are exchanged from soprano to soprano through increasingly virtuosic coloratura lines – one of the greatest operatic stand-offs!
The INO Studio singers will be joined by guest artists Carolyn Holt and Matthew Mannion and special guest, William Thomas in his first Irish performance since winning this year's Veronica Dunne International Singing Competition.
Presented by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Irish National Opera.
