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’re delighted to be returning to Verona again this year, for a magical night at the Arena di Verona to take in an unforgettable performance of Bizet's "Carmen". After the success of our new opera holiday to Rome in 2017, we’ve also decided to return to the beautiful Italian capital, to enjoy a performance of Mozart's "The Magic Flute", at the Teatro dell’Opera.


My love affair with Italy 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
