    Irish National Opera Griselda - Hawks Well Theatre

  • Irish National Opera

    Griselda

     

    Irish National Opera is thrilled to present a new production of Vivaldi's Griselda, an exciting opera that was premiered in Venice in 1735.Vivaldi is one of the world's best-loved composers, celebrated for having written The Four Seasons. INO's Griselda will be the first ever production of any of his operas in Ireland. 

    Peter Whelan, who conducts the INO production, says that Griselda is “one of Vivaldi's greatest masterpieces: feel-good music that bursts with Italianate primary colours” and that it is also surprising for “the touching, heart-on-sleeve pathos of some of the slow arias”.

    The director is Tom Creed, whose last INO production, of Offenbach's The Tales of Hoffmann, is nominated for Best Opera in the 2019 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards. He describes Griselda as “an exciting political and romantic thriller, full of passion, longing, betrayal and deceit.”

    Peter Whelan is the artistic director of the acclaimed Irish Baroque Orchestra. He will conduct the period-instrument players of his own orchestra in what promises to be a riveting production of an opera that features some of the most demanding vocal music of the 18th century.

    Take The Points
     

    "Take the points" is good advice on the pitch, but an even better metaphor for life, especially when you don’t take advice well. How hard can it be for a man to say “point taken!”?

    Des Bishop’s new show tries to digest the incredible changes we have seen in society in the last year and a half; me too, consent, trump, the 8th and how divided everyone is online. Everyone welcome, snowflakes, the easily offended, those that complain about people being offended, PC and non P.C. people, religious people and atheists. We all have points to take and goals to come!
