Cork Opera House presents a concert performance of
Lehár’s The Merry Widow
Featuring Cara O’ Sullivan (Hanna)
Together with a host of national and international opera stars
Conducted by John O’ Brien
Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra & Chorus of the Cork Operatic Society
Following the huge recent success of our Concert Performance of La Traviata, and as part of our Cork Opera House Concert Series, we’re delighted to present a concert performance of Lehár’s The Merry Widow. This concert will bring to life Vienna’s definitive, romantic operetta for Cork audiences and will once again showcase an incredible range of home-grown musical talent.
Internationally-renowned Cork soprano Cara O’ Sullivan will sing the role of Hanna while Trinidad-born tenor Ronad Samm (Pagliacci & Orpheus, The Everyman Palace) takes on the role of Count Danilo.
Directed by the acclaimed Cork-based Opera Director, John O’ Brien, this concert performance will feature the chorus of the Cork Operatic Society together with the recently formed Cork Opera House Concert Orchestra which will again be led by former leader of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Alan Smale.
