    The Lyric Feature

    Wagner's Music in Ireland is a two-part documentary exploring the relationship of Irish audiences, authors, critics and composers with the music of Wagner over the past 150 years.

    The Lyric Feature is RTÉ lyric fm's weekly documentary and music feature programme. Programmes are produced in house by RTÉ lyric fm staff or in collaboration with independent production companies. Subject matter varies from week to week but most of the programmes aim to provide insight into music and music making.

    The Lyric Feature is currently accepting proposals from independent producers and production companies for the BAI's Sound and Vision III Round 24. See here for details
