Glasthule Opera Festival
Following the success of its inaugural festival last June, Glasthule Opera returns to Pavilion Theatre this year with an all Irish cast for Bizet’s Carmen and Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.
Carmen, probably the world's best-loved opera, will be performed on Wednesday 16, Friday 18 and Sunday 20 June at 8pm. Set in Seville, it tells the tragic love story of the fiery gypsy, Carmen, and the young soldier, Don Jose.
Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice will be performed on Thursday 17 and Saturday 19 June at 8pm. It is based on the myth of Orpheus in the Underworld.
