Irish National Opera presents

The First Child

By Donnacha Dennehy & Enda Walsh

A co-production with Landmark Productions.

Tickets €32 & €28

The triumphant conclusion of Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh’s uniquely dark operatic trilogy. 

Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh’s third opera, The First Child, is a narrative that is much larger than the characters themselves. A work that reveals itself incrementally and cuts between the normal and the mythic. Passing through the strange minds of the central characters. Moving sharply from darkness to comedy. Shaped by obsession and unstoppable quest for revenge.
