THE LOVELIEST NIGHT Of THE YEAR
With Tenor Sean Costello, Baritone Frank Naughton and Soprano Sandra Oman
When THE LOVELIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR – A Tribute To Mario Lanza was first performed around the country, it sold out. Additional dates were added and they too sold out – in fact, there have been an incredible 10 sold out shows in the NCH alone, such is the popularity of Mario Lanza 57 years after his death, so this promises to be a very special concert indeed.
THE LOVELIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR celebrates the 57th Anniversary of Mario Lanza’s death, reliving The Magic of Mario Lanza’s Greatest Hits with a celebration concert honoring the life and times of Mario Lanza.
Mario Lanza was one of the greatestest voices of the 20th Century. He is famous for singing such arias as the love duet from “Othello”. His movies include “That Midnight Kiss” and “The Toast of New Orleans”, while his greatest film success “The Great Caruso” made him world famous. “Lanza Fever” swept the whole of America with his “Caruso Concert Tour”.
The show features three fantastic Irish vocalists. The Galway Tenor Sean Costello takes on the role of Mario Lanza and makes it his own. He is ably joined by Baritone Frank Naughton and the stunning Soprano star of Opera Ireland Sandra Oman.
Vladimir Jablokov performs and conducts the Slovak Festival Orchestra Musicians.
He has been playing violin since the age of five and is the fourth generation of his family to make music his career. He has performed regularly with his family on concert stages in Slovakia, Austria, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Ireland and Italy.
What a great Celebration Concert Tour this will be with all his greatest hits.
