Rewarding Times has teamed up with the RTE National Symphony Orchestra to offer you great value on a pair of ticket for Tara Erraught Opera Gala with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra on Friday the 14th of July at 8pm. Conducted by Ramon Tebar, the Opera Gala will take place in the National Concert Hall. 
Tara Erraught – the mezzo-soprano with ‘that elusive X factor’ (Irish Times) – makes a welcome return to headline a gala concert of ravishing operatic arias by Mozart and four 19th-century giants. Meyerbeer’s brightly welcoming ‘Nobles seigneurs, slaut’ (Les Heugenots) ushers in songs by Gounod and Mozart (the imploring ‘Deh per questo istante solo’ from La clemenza di Tito) and a pair of brilliant, bracing arias courtesy of Bellini and Rossini revelling in the coloratura splendour of ‘Se Romeo t’uccise un figlio’ (Roméo et Juliette) and ‘Ah se é ver’ (Il barbiere di Siviglia).

TARA ERRAUGHT

Acclaimed for her rich voice, expansive range and dynamic stage presence worldwide, Irish-born mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught enjoys an ever-growing international career on the opera, orchestral and recital stages. With a wide repertoire that includes Balfe, Bellini, Dvořák, Gounod, Mozart, Puccini, Rossini, Strauss and Verdi, as well as contemporary composers, in recent seasons she has sung two world premieres, made her US opera debut, numerous role debuts, and successfully toured North America three times.

Audiences and Press are not alone in taking notice of Ms. Erraught’s talent: in spring 2013, the Bavarian government bestowed upon her the prestigious Pro meritis scientiae et litterarum in recognition for outstanding contribution to the arts. She is only the fifth musician, and the youngest recipient, to be honored with the annual award since its inception in 2000. In March of 2010 Ms. Erraught was the recipient of Dublin’s National Concert Hall's Rising Star Award. Other honors include First Prize in the Jakub Pustina International Singing Competition in the Czech Republic, along with the Zdar nad Sazavou Audience Prize in 2008. In that same year she was awarded both the Houston Grand Opera Prize and the

Washington National Opera Prize at the International Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition in Vienna. In 2007 Ms. Erraught won the Dermott Troy Award for the Best Irish Singer.

 

Background

A native of Dundalk, Ireland, Tara Erraught is a graduate of the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin, where she studied, and continues to study, with the acclaimed Royal Opera soprano Veronica Dunne. A resident principal soloist with the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich since 2010 (she was a member of the company’s opera studio from 2008 – 2010), Ms. Erraught also works with famed German mezzo-soprano Brigitte Fassbaender, expanding her lieder and opera repertoire.
