Hear the next generation of operatic superstars in this collaboration between the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Irish National Opera. Rachel Croash, Amy Ní Fhearraigh, Andrew Gavin and conductor Sinead Hayes are all from the INO Studio, where they have just finished an intensive year-long programme of masterclasses and performances. Now they take centre stage with the RTÉ CO at the NCH 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!
