Joining the OTC Opera Hub team once more, I will be working with three amazing composers - Elis Czerniak, Sinéad Finegan and Norah Walsh - as we bring to life the story of Iseult, Irish princess and lover of Tristan in a pop-up opera for the Contemporary Music Centre's Culture Night celebrations on September 22nd 2017!
The words of so many great artists - James Joyce to Richard Wagner, Lady Jane Wilde to Thomas Hardy - who have told her story inspire us as we get underway. The composers are already hard at work and the devising & dramaturgy kicks in on Monday. The CMC will host our world premiere in their beautiful Georgian building on Fishamble Street and later that evening we mosey along to Dublin City Council's outdoor amphitheatre to cater to even greater audiences.
My sincere thanks to the Contemporary Music Centre and OTC Opera Hub for creating a space in which we artists and musicians can be bold and bring our art to the public, only a few steps from Iseult's Tower and Handel's former stomping grounds.
