I will be so happy to return home to Dublin in March to sing the title role of Tosca. I’ve been away in Israel for two months singing in Covent Garden’s production of Don Giovanni with Daniel Oren. Next I will go to rehearse a new production of Tosca in Salzburg and then home to my beloved Ireland to sing in Mikhailovsky Theater’s production of Tosca at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre which runs from March 14-18.

Not only do I get to perform the role at home but I get to perform with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Mikhail Tatarnikov. I’m so happy that I get to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day on the green grass of home.

I’m here in St. Petersburg rehearing and performing the title role of Tosca at the prestigious Mikhailovsky Theatre under the baton of world-renowned conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov.

I’ve had a brilliant time here as I’m getting to see this beautiful city while singing this wonderful role.
