Summer time, and the living will be hot, steamy, passionate, tearful, tragic and exhilarating as Celine Byrne, Regina Nathan and Cara O'Sullivan - three of Ireland's finest sopranos - the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the John Murray Show, RTÉ Radio 1, reunite for the first Irish tour of The Three Sopranos Summer Gala in June. One night only in Galway, Limerick, Cork and Waterford (Wednesday 5 June to Saturday 8 June inclusive) with with RTÉ Radio 1's Kathryn Thomas presenting on stage for the John Murray Show. John Finucane conducts.

With solos, duets and specially arranged trios, the tour promises some of opera's most memorable and moving songs and arias as well as thrilling orchestral interludes. Three sublime voices and three centuries of sumptuous music promise one glorious highlight after another including Depuis le jour, Porgi amor, Vissi d'arte, the Flower Duet from Lakmé as well as specially arranged trios of O mio babbino caro, Brindisi and Sempre Libera. Booking is now open for all four venues. Full details below. See full programme listing here.

In celebration of the first Three Sopranos Summer Gala tour, each concert will feature a John Murray Show listener, selected through the programme's 'Sing with the Sopranos Search', singing the popular Neapolitan song O Sole Mio on stage with the three sopranos and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. Garda Sean O'Mahony, originally from Kildimo in Co Limerick and now living in Athy, Co Kildare is one of the four RTÉ Radio 1 listeners selected through the John Murray Show programme. Each of the four singers is being coached in advance by one or more of the singers and all four recently joined the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the three sopranos at the National Concert Hall for their first rehearsal.
