Name: The Nightingale and The Rose - Opera World Premiere by John O'Brien
Date: October 13, 2018 - October 20, 2018
Event Description:

We are enormously proud to present the world premiere production of a brand new opera by John O’Brien, inspired by Oscar Wilde’s timeless story, The Nightingale and the Rose.

The Nightingale and the Rose is a tale of unrequited love, radical transformation and extraordinary sacrifice. Exploring the relationship between love and art, we follow the story of the Nightingale whose only wish is to bring beauty and love into the world, even at the ultimate price.

An extraordinary chance to celebrate the richness and depth of musical talent in Cork. Expect a highly inventive new work featuring singers, musician-actors, dancers and actors brought to you by the critically and popularly acclaimed team whose previous productions include Faust, Der VampyrOrpheus and the award-winning Pagliacci.

“Before this show, I wondered how John O’Brien could turn Oscar Wilde’s simple little love story, with its two characters and a tiny bird, into a sung drama? O’Brien’s magically inventive work answered my question, and the production deserves to be heard” Declan Townsend – Irish Examiner (on the concert performance of The Nightingale and the Rose – 2016)
