WATCH: Saturday October 14th - Robert O'Dwyer's Eithne

Doireann Ní Bhriain presents Robert O'Dwyer's Eithne live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin, a romantic adaptation of a mysterious ancient Irish legend, as the mortal son of Ireland's High King falls in love with the magical Eithne, daughter of the King of Tír na nÓg.

'Bhí an ceoldráma seo ligthe i ndearmad ar fad go dtí gur tháinig an scór chun cinn ag ceannt i 2002, áit ar cheannaigh Leabharlann Náisiúnta na hÉireann é,' a deir Grúpcheannasaí Gaeilge, Rónan Mac Con Iomaire. 'Is beag a cheap ag an am go gcuirfí a léithid de cheoldráma ar mhór-scála, go hiomlán trí Ghaeilge, ar stáitse arís go brách, ach tá sé iontach anois go mbeidh an deis ag an bpobal Ceolfhoireann Siansa Náisiúnta RTÉ a fheiceáil i mbun a léirithe sa bhfómhar."

Tá ceol Eithne báite i traidisiúin ceoldrámaíochta na hEorpa mar a bhí ag deireadh an naoiú céad déag, le tionchar Dvorák agus Wagner le sonrú sa gceol.  Insíonn an ceoldrama scéal banphrionsa Thír na nÓg, agus a haistir ar fud na cruinne ar thóir laoch a thabharfadh ar ais chuici a máthair a bhí curtha faoi gheasa. 

A rare example of an opera with the libretto in the Irish language.  Eithne stars internationally acclaimed artists soprano Orla Boylan (pictured) as Eithne, baritone Gavan Ring as the High King of Ireland and tenor Robin Tritschler as Ceart, Eithne's lover. The chorus of Opera Theatre Company and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra are conducted by Fergus Sheil.
