Riders to the SeaDVD
A compact one-act opera achieves epic emotional resonance in Vaughan Williams' "Riders to the Sea" (1988). This emotional production is based on dramatist J.M. Synge's tragedy about the Aran, a people dwelling on the rugged coast of Ireland whose existence depended almost entirely on the sea. The soaring vocals of accomplished singers Sarah Walker, Kathleen Tynan and Yvonne Brennan are accompanied by the Radio Telefs ireann Chamber Choir and Concert Orchestra provide.
