Monteverdi: Tirsi e Clori

Handel: Clori, Tirsi e Fileno


The Royal Irish Academy of Music, in collaboration with The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art, returns to Project for Opera Briefs, which sees both organisations work closely together in the presentation of opera in Dublin.

Steered by an exceptional team of experts in the fields of theatre and music in Ireland, Opera Briefs affords Irish audiences the opportunity to experience first-hand the next generation of Irish opera singers and stage technicians.

The Monteverdi/Handel double bill centres around love triangles, proving that love hasn’t changed in 400 years: it’s still just as complicated!

Directed by Conor Hanratty and conducted by David Adams with the RIAM Baroque Ensemble, these rarely performed works are a must-see for opera lovers.
