“Star crossed lovers” at the Countess’ Salon

Kevin Neville, with Amy Ní Fhearraigh in Le Nozze di Figaro

OPERA has a keen following in Limerick and God knows, we have grown many talented singers. Consider the young generation of Sarah-Ellen Murphy, Jean Wallace, Eve Stafford, Kevin Neville and Catriona Walsh, with the established piano accompanist Irina Dernova on piano.

They assemble for performance in the notional salon of Countess de la Rose at No. 1 Pery Square for a series of dates:  Sunday October 15, November 12 and December 10, 8pm.

Shirley Keane of the recent Opera Workshop Limerick is producer and director of “what promises to be a glorious evening of classic opera, well known songs and musical highlights, including those by Puccini, Bizet and Mozart. This is a Salon that does not go smoothly for the Countess in a romantic, nostalgic story of star crossed lovers, feuding divas and a pushy tiger mama.”

There’s a three course dinner option also before the shenanigans. Tickets for all have to be booked in advance by emailing   [email protected]
