Bird is the inaugural commission from Festival Firsts, an initiative of IFCN (Irish Festivals’ Co-production Network).

Julie Feeney’s avant garde approach to her one-of-a-kind sound is certain to bring an innovative and exciting vision to the opera stage. Based on Oscar Wilde’s much loved story, the happy prince, with score and libretto by Feeney, Bird will feature soloists, chorus, orchestra and a creative team including director Mikel Murfi and fashion designer Joanne Hynes.
