Civic Theatre in Tallaght hosts Opera Theate Company on the 19th of June with Monteverdi's Orpheo.
"Dramatic music and raw emotional power remain undiminished in Baroque masterpiece Orfeo, over 400 years after the opera was composed. This earliest of operatic gems still enthralls the modern audience with Monteverdi's entrancing and exquisite music lingering in the mind.
Romance is in the air, and wedding day celebrations have already begun as Orfeo is poised to marry his beloved Euridice. Then disaster strikes. Can our desperate hero rescue his lover?
Opera Theatre Company, Ireland’s National Touring Opera Company continues its 26th year of touring opera with this memorable and compelling work. OTC is delighted to welcome back founding member Ben Barnes, who directed the company’s first opera in 1986 and now returns to direct Orfeo.
Sung in English, the captivating score is performed by the OTC Baroque ensemble. Design is by Joe Vanek with lighting by John Comiskey. With a powerful cast including Oliver Mercer (Orfeo), Matthew Trevino and Irish sopranos Daire Halpin and Sadhbh Dennedy, Orfeo will delight the first time opera-goer and seasoned fan alike" - Civic Theatre http://www.civictheatre.ie/
