    A World of Song

    The sea has many faces: from the bucket 'n' spade allure of the briny, to the siren call of a mighty foe. Tonight, A World of Song charts its course through oceanic repertoire.

    In advance of her concert with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in the National Concert on 5th June, Liz Nolan spoke to mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught.
