'A night at the Opera'

 Once again, the soloists, chorus and symphony orchestra of the DIT Conservatoryof Music and Drama are proud to present 'A Night at the Opera' in the National Concert Hall on Tuesday 22 February.  This has become a favourite event in the calendar for all music lovers, and for those who want to hear the singers and musicians of the future perform.

This year's programme includes excerpts and scenes from some of the world's favourite operas, including 'Don Carlos' by Verdi; Rossini's 'The Barber of Seville'; and 'Die Fledermaus' by Strauss.  The evening will open with the overture from Verdi's 'La Forza del Destino', which is a splendid orchestral show piece.

 The conductors of the orchestra for the evening will be William Halpinand Roy Holmes, both of whom are members of the Conservatory's impressive academic staff.  The director of this year's production is once again the renowned Vivian Coates, and the guest of honour for the evening will be the Minister of State at the Department of Education and Science, Ms. Síle de Valera TD.

 In previous years 'A Night at the Opera' has attracted a full house at the NCH, so early booking is advisable.  Tickets are €15 (€8 concession) and can be booked through the National Concert Hall Booking Office at 01 417 0000 or online at www.hea.ie
