One of Ireland’s leading sopranos, Cork-born Cara takes to the Ballymaloe Grainstore stage for the first time. As well as showcasing her extraordinary voice, she will share memorable stories from her career, including both highlights and lowlights. She’ll perform classic favourites from her wide-ranging repertoire in this informal, irreverent and humorous evening of song and story.
An artist with an impeccable operatic pedigree, Cara has risen to prominence as one of the country’s best loved voices. She is an instinctive performer with a remarkably full voice, exciting and dramatic but she performs with great sensitivity. Cara has shown herself to be a fearless vocal artist, whether singing Mozart, Verdi, Donizetti, or Puccini and is very much in demand for opera, oratorio and song recitals.
Cara’s concert career and operatic engagements have taken her all over the world. Spanning an impressive and wide-ranging repertoire, she has been referred to as “the Irish superstar of her generation”.
