Saturday December 15th - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Verdi's La Traviata

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus in Michael Mayer's richly textured new production, featuring a dazzling 19th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta's hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelsey is Alfredo's father, Germont, who destroys their love. (Juan Diego Florez and Diana Damrau in Verdi's La Traviata Photo Vincent Peters, Met Opera)


Saturday December 22nd - Robert O'Dwyer's Eithne

Doireann Ní Bhriain presents Robert O'Dwyer's Eithne recorded live at the National Concert Hall, Dublin. In this romantic adaptation of a mysterious ancient Irish legend, the mortal son of Ireland's High King falls in love with the magical Eithne, daughter of the King of Tír na nÓg. A rare example of an opera with the libretto in the Irish language. Eithne stars internationally acclaimed artists soprano Orla Boylan as Eithne, baritone Gavan Ring as the High King of Ireland and tenor Robin Tritschler as Ceart, Eithne's lover. The chorus of Opera Theatre Company (now the Irish National Opera) and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra are conducted by Fergus Sheil. (This production was first broadcast on Saturday 14th October 2017)
