The Stalls (Preview)

The Stalls (Preview)

Wednesday, 12 June 2019, 6.00pm

If you think the performers in opera are dramatic, you should see what goes on in the audience!

Each of us enters the theatre with our own drama, our own voice, our own story. What happens when these stories intersect? When we sit in the dark with strangers and surrender ourselves to another world, where does the audience end and the opera begin?

In a deft re-imagining of theatrical space, The Stalls invites the audience to take a long, hard look at itself and enjoy an utterly new experience that will forever change the way we see our fellow theatre-goers.

Composer Tom Lane and librettist Lily Akerman return with the third instalment of The House Trilogy, a chamber opera series peeking behind the curtain of Cork’s beloved Opera House. Having already shown audiences what goes on Backstage and Front of House, we now hold the mirror up to ourselves and see what can happen in The Stalls.
