This concert brings together two of Ireland’s leading musicians to deliver a special programme celebrating vocal repertoire for stage and screen.
For this early evening recital Aisling Kenny and Úna Hunt present a unique combination of favourite operatic arias, Lieder and songs—many of which were translated from their original stage or salon origins to feature in the soundtracks of well known films.
Don’t miss this intimate performance of music for stage and screen in the NOH’s Jerome Hynes Theatre, with a programme including material by Bach, Brahms, and Moore and selected highlights from the operatic repertoire.
