North West Opera will perform an unmissable gala concert in An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny next month.
‘Favourites from Musicals & Operas’ takes place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd November and will showcase the biggest hits in theatrical history.
International conductor Piotr Oleksiak is flying in specially for the event and he’ll be joined by international soloists, Markus Herzog, tenor, and Brazilian baritone Fernando Araujo for the two-night event.
Concert goers can expect a truly memorable evening where they’ll be treated to the top twenty hits from favourite musicals, as well as a few dotted highlights of much-loved operas.
From the best of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera and Cats to classic numbers from Les Misérables and other Broadway shows such as South Pacific and Fiddler on the Roof, the event will be topped off with the greatest opera performances from La Bohème and Carmen.
‘Favourites from Musicals & Operas’ is supported by a local cast and full orchestra, and MC on the night is Billy Patterson, who is well-known in the musical scene in the northwest.
Looking forward to the event next month, Ann Jennings, North West Opera said:
“We’ve been busy behind the scenes over the last few months rehearsing for the show and with just a few weeks to go, it’s really coming together now. It promises to be a great evening of entertainment and audiences can expect to hear all the top musical favourites as well as a few opera classics.
“Huge thanks to our hard-working local cast who make the event what it is and we’re also looking forward to welcoming our professional international soloists as well as our conductor, Piotr Oleksiak to Donegal next month.
“The show is running two nights but there’s already been huge interest and tickets are already selling fast, so we’d encourage everyone to book early. It really is going to a feast for the ears where you can reminisce about all your favourite musical hits, so don’t miss out.”
Adding to this, Ann said: “North West Opera has been running for over ten years and we’re very committed to bringing professional-level shows to the northwest for people of all ages to enjoy. People often think events or shows like these aren’t for them, but we’re encouraging people to come out and experience something new.”
