The Dundalk mezzo-soprano has already won high praise for performances of the role of Angelina, nicknamed Cinderella. Last October she starred in Welsh National Opera's production at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. Her singing prompted The Times in London to write, “in Tara Erraught, WNO has a natural Angelina. The Irish mezzo’s voice is warm as smouldering embers, tender throughout, with unfaltering coloratura. She’s down to earth but a dreamer, wise about the world but innocently hopeful. Even in this cartoonish universe, this Cenerentola’s thoughts and feelings seemed real.”

 

Tara is partnered by American tenor, Andrew Owens, who makes his INO debut as Don Ramiro, Prince of Salerno. Der Neue Merker described him as “a secure, high Rossini tenor,” and added “wow! - such tenors are in demand.”

 

Rossini's take on Cinderella is not quite the conventional fairy-tale one. But its uniquely dark yet sparkling and touchingly redemptive qualities have long made it the go-to operatic version of the story.

 

INO's new production is directed by award-winning Kilkenny director Orpha Phelan, whose work has been seen around Europe and in Australia. She describes it as “a treat to direct Cinderella, a story that everyone knows so well. With an emphasis on goodness and kindness in this version, Rossini’s La Cenerentola feels curiously modern and classical at the same time. Whether you’re an opera buff or a first timer, there’ll be something here for you. It's relevant and contemporary, yet straight from the world of fairytales. It’s a real mixture of humour, grit, vocal gymnastics and delicious melodies. And it's wrapped up in a magical set and luscious costumes, all delivered with style and wit.”

 

Irish National Opera is funded by The Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
