Opera Theatre Company presents: Eithne

I will be singing the minor role of "Feargus" and chorus bass in OTC's concert performance of Eithne. 

 

In this romantic adaptation of a mysterious ancient Irish legend, the mortal son of Ireland’s High King falls in love with the magical Eithne, daughter of the King of Tír na nÓg.

Witness a truly historical moment when Ireland’s first romantic opera, sung in the Irish language, is brought back to life after one hundred years absence.

Eithne stars internationally acclaimed artists soprano Orla Boylan as Eithne, baritone Gavan Ring as the High King of Ireland and tenor Robin Tritschler as Ceart, Eithne’s lover. The chorus of Opera Theatre Company and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra are conducted by Fergus Sheil.

The music of Eithne is steeped in the late nineteenth century European operatic tradition with shades of Dvorák and Wagner. Shimmering strings, hunting horns, luscious orchestrations with soaring vocal lines, rousing choruses and lyrical arias. All expressed through the remarkable medium of the Irish language.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to encounter one of Ireland’s greatest musical resurrections.
