Tara Erraught – the mezzo-soprano with ‘that elusive X factor’ (Irish Times) – makes a welcome return to headline a gala concert of ravishing operatic arias by Mozart and four 19th-century giants. Meyerbeer’s brightly welcoming ‘Nobles seigneurs, slaut’ (Les Heugenots) ushers in songs by Gounod and Mozart (the imploring ‘Deh per questo istante solo’ from La clemenza di Tito) and a pair of brilliant, bracing arias courtesy of Bellini and Rossini revelling in the coloratura splendour of ‘Se Romeo t’uccise un figlio’ (Roméo et Juliette) and ‘Ah se é ver’ (Il barbiere di Siviglia).
