Rachel Kelly to Debut as Donna Elvira
Rachel will make her role debut as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Northern Ireland Opera. This production will be directed by Oliver Mears, Artistic director of NI Opera, and soon to be Artistic Director of the Royal Opera House, and performed under the baton of Nicholas Chalmers. Rachel played Nerone in Oliver Mears' award-winning production of Agrippina with the Irish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jonathan Cohen to rave reviews in September 2015.
"For sheer vocal fireworks, however, the palm went to the feckless Nerone of Rachel Kelly, still firing off the coloratura accurately in ‘Come nube’, at the end of a long evening.”
