April to June with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra
The Signature Series continues with smouldering star Storm Large, followed by the long-awaited Dublin debut of tenor Piotr Beczala. Astonishing Russian mezzo Elena Zhidkova heads a 'to die for' cast in Cavalleria rusticana, conducted by John Wilson. Film and musical fans will be chomping at the bit when Wilson conducts Cole Porter in Hollywood, two concert performances of Brigadoon and a celebration of Stephen Sondheim in his 85th year. And the Oscar Goes To... features the greatest Oscar award-winning and nominated music. Liverpudlian actor/singer Mark McGann brings us for a trip down Abbey Road with The John Lennon Songbook. All this and an indulgent evening of Russian music in Essential Classics.

Pink Martini front woman Storm Large certainly lives up to her name (and yes, it's her real name!). This rock star-turned-actress-turned-cabaret artist has to be experienced to be believed. Backed by a male vocal quartet, Storm will bring inherent theatricality to the complex personalities of Anna in The Seven Deady Sins (Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht). She also offers her unique interpretations of the likes of I've Got You Under My Skin, The Lady is a Tramp and Ne me quitte pas. More info.
