There are plenty of shows at the Irish National Opera, with something for everyone.
With Hansel and Gretel finishing up on the 7th of March in Letterkenny, the fantastic masterpiece 'Carmen' is set to take place in our very own Bord Gais Energy Theatre, from the 22nd of March.
The alluring story of Carmen tells of a sexual and independent woman who meets a handsome young bullfighter and falls in love. A story of love that leads to tragedy, friendship and rivalry all under the scorching Spanish sun. This particular opera is spoken and sung in Spanish, but don't worry, the surtitles are helpfully supplied in English too, so that you don't miss any of the twists and turns that this enchanting story takes.
The run time for Carmen is approximately 3 and a half hours, with two intervals, and is on show on the 22nd, 24th, 26th and 28th of March, all in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
After 'Carmen', the Irish National Opera are set to bring 'The Abduction of Seraglio' to the stage in Dublin's Gaiety Theatre on the 19th, 20th, 22nd and 23rd of May. Being sung in German, this Opera also has surtitles accompanying it.
