    • CarlowOpera Episode 5 and we're getting behind voice workshops that Fergus and the team are running in Carlow to get the local cast ready for the opera. Its about getting them in shape, gym for the vocal chords and Fergus brings weather into the practice since weather, we discover, is going to play a big part in this opera.
