Don't miss this first-ever Irish staging of one of the greatest baroque operas.
Don't miss this first-ever Irish staging of The Return of Ulysses, one of the greatest baroque operas ever performed. Brought to you in conjunction by the cutting-edge Opera Collective Ireland and the world-renowned Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, it's a heady tour-de-force of some of the most unique ideas in the genre.
Be swept along by the inimitable music of Monteverde as you experience the dramatic tale of Homer's Odyssey.
This new tale, led by Tony Award-winning director Patrick Mason and conductor Christian Curnyn, takes place ten years after the siege of Troy, and finds our hero devastatingly no closer to home. Patiently waiting in Ithaca, his wife Penelope resists suitors while wondering whether her waiting is, after all, in vain.
A co-production with the Kilkenny Arts Festival, this English language production will leave you stunned.
