Favourites from the operatic and concert stage with special guest Sylvia O'Brien

** ARTIST CHANGE**:
The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra regrets to announce that guest soloist Sarah-Jane Brandon has had to withdraw from tomorrow night's concert( Friday, July 8) at the National Concert Hall. We wish Sarah-Jane a speedy recovery.

We are fortunate that soprano Sylvia O'Brien has agreed to perform with the RTÉ NSO at short notice. The advertised programme remains unchanged.

The scurrying opening to Mozart's great comic opera The Marriage of Figaro ushers in an evening rich with vocal and orchestral favourites from the operatic and concert stage.

Soprano Sylvia O'Brien will sing four glorious arias: Dvorák's Song to the Moon (Rusalka), Massenet's Ah! Je suis seule... dis-moi que je suis belle (Thaďs) and two contrasting greats by Mozart, Dove sono (The Marriage of Figaro) and the wonderful Exsultate, jubilate. Expect fireworks and melting moments in the orchestral showpieces, including the Méditation from Thaďs for violin and orchestra, the Polonaise and Waltz from Eugene Onegin and, to close, Tchaikovsky's brilliantly orchestrated Capriccio Italien, brimming with charm and delightful tunes drawn from Italian folk music.
