James Joyce’s best-loved short story The Dead is given a thrilling new operatic treatment.
This new version taps into the deep vein of musical references running through original story, taking us on journey exploring life, love and death.
Acclaimed Irish composer Ellen Cranitch and award-winning playwright Tom Swift have created a pared back musical telling of Joyce’s classic story that is by turns theatrical, hilarious and tragic.
Directed by Jo Mangan, four singers accompanied by a string quartet conjure the atmosphere of a Christmas party inhabited by Joyce’s vibrant characters.
Listen to a track from The Dead. performed by Ruth McGill here.
Running time: 70 min
