From Éadaoin O’Donoghue and John O’Brien, the writers of 'The Nightingale and the Rose' and 'Lilith', comes the new opera Morrígan - produced by Cork Opera House in association with The Everyman Theatre.
She is the Irish Goddess of death and fate. Her story is visceral and primal – one of a beautiful, natural love thwarted by society; of Deirdre and the Sons of Usna; and of a king corrupted by lust and revenge who drags his kingdom to its doom. Sweeping from the epic to the intimate, Morrígan contains dramatic scenes of blood and fire, soaring arias, tender duets, and large action packed ensembles with highly charged battle scenes.
Kim Sheehan, Majella Cullagh, Jung Soo Yun, Julian Tovey, Joe Corbett, Simon Morgan, Viktor Priebe, Emma Nash, Justine Viani, Annie Gill, Gráinne Gillis, Ross Scanlon, Ben Thapa and Will Frost, Patrick Lynch, Patrick Nolan, Sarah Ryan, Gavin McEntee, Liv Amerie Gregorio and Karen Underwood.
