Clonmel-born soprano Kelley Lonergan, winner of the 2013 RDS Music Bursary and an Opera Theatre Company Young Artist, places emotion to the fore in her concert debut with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. Be entranced by the beautiful, bewitching delicacies of Puccini's 'Si, mi chiamano Mimì' and 'Donde lieta usci' (La bohème), the exalted turmoil of Leoncavallo's 'Stridono lassù' (Pagliacci) and sweetly fervent 'Lo son l'umile ancella' from Cilea's Adriana Lecouvrer. Swoon to Puccini's aromatic Chrysanthemums and become a child again in the wonders of Respighi's richly coloured and event-filled Magic Toy Shop.
