A multi-sensory collaboration across disciplines between some of the most exciting artists in contemporary Irish music and theatre.

Una Santa Oscura is like an opera without singers – a unique new piece of music theatre inspired by the life of 12th Century abbess, composer and mystic Hildegard of Bingen.

Performed by acclaimed violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan in a startling contemporary setting, this evocative combination of sound and visuals creates a tangible sense of a life explored on stage.

“a composer of imaginative resource and a sure formal sense…has the gift of making even the barest ideas interesting” Gramophone Magazine

“an overflowing talent” Il Manifesto
