We’re giving James Joyce’s best-loved short story The Dead a thrilling new operatic treatment.
This new version taps into the deep vein of musical references running through original story, taking us on journey exploring life, love and death.
Acclaimed Irish composer Ellen Cranitch and award-winning playwright Tom Swift (of The Performance Corporation) have created a pared back musical telling of Joyce’s classic story that is by turns theatrical, hilarious and tragic.
Directed by Jo Mangan, four singers accompanied by a string quartet conjure the atmosphere of a Christmas party inhabited by Joyce’s vibrant characters.
Preview: 8 December

The Dead is part of the Ireland’s 2016 Global and Diaspora programme. The work will premiere at Project Arts Centre, Dublin in December 2015, and will tour internationally during 2016.
