Free lunchtime opera in the city

Lunchtime operas are to be held outside city council’s offices on Wood Quay each Thursday of August.

Now in its eleventh year, the free open-air operas start this Thursday at 1pm and run every Thursday at the same time for four weeks until August 26.

Dublin City Council are inviting people to “Do something different at lunchtime this summer and listen to opera in the informal and intimate setting of the grounds of Civic Offices on Wood Quay in the city centre.”

The line up is as follows: August 5 – Don Pasquale (Donizetti); August 12 – Ariodante (Handel); August 19 – Cavalleria Rusticana (Mascagni) / Pagliacci (Leoncavallo); and August 26 – Don Giovanni (Mozart).

Operas will feature Sandra Oman, Janyce Condon, Kay Lynch, Mary Flaherty, Liz Ryan, Niall Morris, Declan, Kelly, Simon Morgan, Eugene McGinty and Stephen Fennelly, with narrator Ciaran Nagle and musical director David Wray.
