“I want to be a prima donna”
An afternoon with the NI Opera Studio
Enjoy an afternoon with operatic favourites and rare musical gems from the last two centuries. The young talents of the Northern Ireland Opera Studio will present music from comic opera, operetta and early musical theatre, including works by Gioachino Rossini, Victor Herbert, Franz Lehár, Gaetano Donizetti, Reynaldo Hahn and Cole Porter, among others. The performing NI Opera Studio singers are Ana-Maria Acunune, Zoë Jackson, David Lee and David Corr.
The NI Opera Studio is a development programme for young opera singers from across the island of Ireland. During their membership, participants perform in Studio-scale productions and recitals, receive masterclasses and coaching, as well as language tuition and career advice. You can find out more detail about the NI Opera Studio here.
The singers will be accompanied by graduate piano students from the Arizona State University. This event is part of the Walled City Music Festival 2020.
