RTE Lyric FM - RTECO summer series

24 August 2010

I was delighted to be invited to sing with the RTE Concert Orchestra as part of their Summer Lunchtime Series 2010. Under the baton of David Brophy I performed:

For anyone who loves opera or wants to hear the human voice do extraordinary things! Irish soprano Mary O’Sullivan joins the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for four stunning arias in this feast of operatic favourites. Hear Musetta’s famous plate-smashing aria ‘Quando m’en vo’, vocal fireworks and expressive extremes in ‘Nel Grave Tormento’ by the teenage Mozart, the ever-popular Laughing Song from Die Fledermaus and another laughing song, Bernstein’s coloratura showpiece ‘Glitter and Be Gay’.
