Opera Holidays in association with RTÉ Lyric fm’s Marty Whelan


Soak up the unforgettable atmosphere at the Opera in Italy with RTÉ Lyric fm’s Marty Whelan. We were delighted to return to Verona again this year, for a magical night at the Arena di Verona to take in an unforgettable performance of Puccini’s ‘Madame Butterfly’. We also added a new Opera tour to Rome this year, taking in Puccini’s ‘Tosca’, at the Teatro dell’Opera. Our opera holidays in association RTÉ Lyric fm’s Marty Whelan are currently sold out for 2017.

My love affair with Verona continues....we’re delighted to be returning once again with Marty in the Morning on RTÉ lyric fm to historic Verona where the open air opera in the Arena di Verona is the closest thing to musical heaven on earth….” Marty Whelan
