Space Upstairs

By Royal Irish Academy of Music

Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring, a wonderfully witty depiction of English rural life, is the RIAM’s principal opera production in 2013. Set in the imaginary East Suffolk town of Loxford, the opera charts the coming-of-age of the meek and mild Albert Herring after he is selected as the town’s first May King in the absence of any virtuous women.
A touching and bittersweet comic opera, sparkling with character, wit, and, at times great poignancy, directed by Lynne Parker and conducted by David Adams.
Presented in collaboration with Design for Stage and Screen, IADT Dún Laoghaire in association with RTÉ Lyric FM.
“Opera to the standard that would make any professional theatre proud” Opera Now

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy.
