From Opera de Paris to the Edel Quinn Hall
Published 14/03/2013 | 05:26
FANS of operatic singing are in for a real treat on Saturday night with a performance by outstanding soprano Cara O'Sullivan.
This is a great time to catch a performance by Cara who is not only one of Ireland's leading sopranos she is also an artist 'at the top of her game' so as to speak.
Her concert in Kanturk comes soon after a tour earlier this year where she revealed a more intimate side to her singing with a collection of gorgeous art songs and lieder, accompanied by award-winning Irish pianist Ciara Moroney,.
Cara O'Sullivan has become an artist with an impeccable operatic pedigree and has risen to prominence as one of Ireland's leading sopranos.
She is an instinctive performer with a remarkably full voice, exciting and dramatic, yet always performs with great sensitivity.
She has shown herself to be a fearless vocal artist, whether singing Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti or Puccini.
Cara's operatic engagements have taken her all over the world, performing with Glyndebourne on Tour, The Royal Opera House, Opera de Paris and English National Opera, to name but a few.
Her US debut as Queen of Night at the Cincinnati Festival Opera was a huge success and the Cincinnati press enthused – "Cara O'Sullivan dominated her scenes with a voice of steel and sparkle, and practically pulls you from your seat!!"
Overall, Cara has left the critics scrabbling for superlatives with her passionate performances, so her Kanturk audience is in for a real treat.
Cara - from The Lough in Cork - has been described this year as at the height of her powers as a vocal artist and her ability to engage with her audience ensures her concert performances are truly a delight not to be missed.
She has enraptured audiences in many of the world's most prestigious venues, from Sydney Opera House to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden to the Opera de Paris - now it's the turn of the Edel Quinn Hall, Kanturk.
Tickets: €20 from Vinny's Newsagents, Main St, Kanturk.
