Cara O’Sullivan’s concert generating great interest

Féile na nDéise Festival has a twelve year history of providing the best in entertainment and have organised some of the finest concerts ever staged in Dungarvan. This year will be no different, for along with their now traditional night of music with local group Bodhrán, they have also lined up the inimitable Cara O’Sullivan for their Sunday night offering in St. Mary’s Parish Church during the May Bank Holiday weekend.

The Cork soprano will be accompanied on the programme by the Welsh Male Voice Choir, making as balanced a programme as anyone could hope for.

Cara O’Sullivan has become an artist with an impeccable operatic pedigree and has risen to prominence as one of Ireland’s leading sopranos. She is an instinctive performer with a remarkably full voice, exciting and dramatic, yet always performs with great sensitivity. She has shown herself to be a fearless vocal artist, whether singing Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti or Puccini.

Cara’s operatic engagements have taken her all over the world and highlights of her career include Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and Elletra in Idomeneo for Glyndebourne on Tour; Donna Anna, Fiordiligi in Cosi fan Tutte, Violetta in La Traviata for Welsh National Opera, Fiordiligi and Konstanza in Die Entfuhrung for Garsington Opera, The Queen of Night in The Magic Flute for Opera Nantes, Opera de Vlaamse, Opera Ireland, Opera de Paris, English National Opera.

The list is almost endless and her US debut as Queen of Night at the Cincinnati Festival Opera was a huge success.

Cara’s concert career has taken her all over the world, spanning an impressive and wide ranging repertoire. Recent concert performances included Handel’s Messiah at Palau Musica, Barcelona; Verdi’s Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall; a concert performance of Die Walkyre for The Royal Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, also at the Concertgebow in Amsterdam, and Britten’s War Requiem with The National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin.

Her diary is well filled for quite some time to come and includes dates in Moscow; a concert tour of Australia and New Zealand, concluding with a special St. Patrick’s Day gala performance at the Sydney Opera House.

Féile na nDéise has been lucky to secure a date from Cara and the people of Waterford are fortunate to have a concert of this calibre to look forward to.It is confidently expected that the concert will be a sell out, so look out for tickets which will be on sale shortly and don’t delay in booking yours.
