Marty in the Morning Friday 29 January 2016

All this week we are giving you the chance to be in the big draw on Friday for our trip to the
opera in Verona to see Carmen in association with the Travel Department.

Travel Department is a leading tour operator in Ireland specialising in guided group holidays to over 100 different destinations all over the world.  Lake Garda, Venice & Verona Opera Holiday with
RTE lyric fm’s Marty Whelan. 7 Nights for 2 people!


                                                                                                                                  Carmen at the Arena di Verona, 2015.

Join me for the opera trip of a lifetime. During this magical holiday, explore the historic towns that hug the coast of Lake Garda and stroll through quaint streets and squares, all set in the tranquil surroundings of blue waters and towering mountains. You will take in an unforgettable performance of Bizet's Carmen at the Arena di Verona, which is sure to leave you spellbound. First performed in 1875, Bizet’s acclaimed masterpiece tells the story of the downfall of Don Jose, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the fiery gypsy, Carmen.  

There are two further excursions included in this 7-night holiday. In Venice, gaze upon St. Mark’s Basilica; watch gondolas sail along the canals, and admire the stunning piazzas, bridges and gothic buildings that make this city so magnificent. You will also take a guided boat trip of Lake Garda to view some of the beautiful sites and places of interest on the lake, including stops in the towns of Malcesine and Limone.
With the serene waters of Lake Garda, the unique beauty of Venice, and the classic Italian romance of Verona, this trip to Italy is the perfect combination of opera, culture and history.

This fabulous prize includes:                                                            GH Liberty Hotel, Riva del Garda

Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
