Opera in the Opera House, but not as you know it…

This new site-specific commission by award winning composer Tom Lane will transform the public areas of Cork Opera House into a unique performance space. With a libretto by Lily Akerman and directed by Conor Hanratty, Front Of House offers a surreal insight into one of Cork's best-loved venues.

From the team behind Flåtpäck (nominated Best Opera Production, Irish Times Theatre Awards 2013) and Harp (Tiger Dublin Fringe 2014), expect singing hoovers, marimba playing baristas and clarinets taking over the box office...

Performed by Majella Cullagh, Emma Nash, Kelley Lonergan, Alex Petcu and Carolyn Goodwin.
Presented by Ulysses Opera Theatre & Cork Opera House.
Produced by Maura O’Keeffe.
Kindly supported by Cork Midsummer Festival and UCC School of Music and Theatre. Funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
