Tonights Opera House Concert is TV special

MICHAEL LONDRA. Wexford tenor who is recording a TV special for the US market at the National Opera House in Wexford tonight.

Wexford singer, Michael Londra has come home to tape a new television special and live double album titled IRELAND WITH MICHAEL to be aired nationwide in the US, will feature all that Wexford has to offer to tourists.
The show, a pilot for the PBS network in the US, combines Michael’s love of his home county with his singing career, and will centre on the National Opera House in Wexford with a Concert tonight (Friday).
The show will blend Michael’s voice with Ireland’s leading musicians and some very special guest artists including West End star, Zoe Rainey. Zoe featured in Liam Bates and Eoin Colfer’s musical, NOËL, which Michael produced at the Opera House several years ago and toured in North America in 2018. Local Wexford choirs and solo artists will join Michael through the night. Liam Bates will act as musical director for the project.
Part of the show will feature some Christmas songs with the audience encouraged to bring a Christmas jumper or decoration to wear later in the show for a few songs.
Michael Londra told; “We plan on focusing on some of my favorite spots including Johnstown, Kilmore Quay and the Hook. I am delighted that Wexford County Council and the Visit Wexford campaign are on board to help my team get the co-operation of tourism sites around the county. I will make sure that Wexford is seen in the light it deserves.”
Michael has local experts on board to make the TV show. John Michael Murphy of Seanchaí Productions will serve as location director, Shonagh Lyons as a writer and Nick Murphy of Brandhouse Media will handle design.
The tenor’s illustrious career highlights include recording with Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavarotti on the Arias Ancora album for Universal Records, performing as lead singer of Riverdance on Broadway, singing with Judy Collins at the JFK 50 celebrations for the Kennedy family and earning two Emmy® nominations for his first TV PBS special Beyond Celtic.
Tickets for tonight’s show are available at the National Opera House €22.50
