RIAM present

Opera

Francesco Cavalli's La Calisto

Dates: 12 Jan - 18 Jan

Show Time: 7.30pm (Matinee, 2.30pm) 

Tickets: €20-24 (students €12)

Packed full of mischief, irreverence and outrageous flirtation, La Calisto is a seventeenth-century retelling of an ancient Greek myth.

Jove’s schemes to seduce the beautiful Calisto become entangled with chaste Diana’s illicit love for Endymion, resulting in a host of comical and dangerous shenanigans. Add in a few randy half-goats, a lust-filled virgin and Juno, the furious Queen of the gods, for a heady mix, all topped off by metaphysics and metamorphosis when the title character is ultimately transformed into a constellation of stars.

La Calisto is as saucy as it is beautiful, with catchy tunes, haunting melodies, and dramatic musical storytelling.  The perfect vehicle for this starry ensemble cast of the RIAM’s finest singers, conducted by David Adams and directed by Sinéad O’Neill.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles

Presented in collaboration with Design for Stage and Screen, IADT Dún Laoghaire

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

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. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
