Megan O’Neill’s musical beginnings were in sean-nós and traditional music before she discovered opera in her early twenties. Originally from Killarney in Co. Kerry, the young soprano is currently preparing her doctorate in Music Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. She has performed in a number of operas, most recently All the Angels by Nick Drake and The Scorched Earth Trilogy by Brian Irvine and John McIlduff produced by Irish National Opera and Dumbworld Production Company. Later this year, Megan will play the role of Cinderella at the Wexford Opera Festival as well as the lead role in the the film opera DreamCatchr by Kevin O’Connell.
Having won awards at the Feis Ceoil on numerous occasions, she won the prestigious RDS Music Bursary in 2022 which includes a recital at the CCI. Accompanied on the piano by Andrew Synott, Megan’s euphonious voice fills Saint Patrick’s chapel tonight with works by Bach, Handel and Offenbach.
