The cast of "La Traviata" at the Pavilion Theatre last night received a standing ovation from an audience overcome with surprise and delight at the superb quality of every aspect of the production. A triumphant return to his native city after more than a decade for Lyric Tenor Donal J. Byrne who has been busy singing in the opera houses of Europe, most recently n La Scala Milan.
Another triumph for Soprano Sinead Campbell Wallace who made her debut as Violetta last night. A proud night for Glasthule Opera as no doubt this will be the first of many for Sinead.
Completing the trio of principals, one of Glasthule's favourites Cork Baritone Brendan Collins gave one of his finest performances as Germont.
