Composed by Finola Merivale, with libretto by Jody O’Neill, directed by Jo Mangan.
Experience the world’s first virtual reality community opera! Ecology, nature and flight from danger fire up this new work developed with communities from Inis Meáin, Tallaght and rural Ireland. Become Nalva as she and her people flee a land that has been ravaged by their short-sighted actions, followed by Daol, the restless, unleashed spirit. Put on your headset and journey through dangerous waters and new frontiers to find sanctuary. In this new radical approach to opera, we strive to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past – the scorch and burn approach to living in this world (Limited to 6 participants per showing/Running time: 30 minutes)
