Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland
The Irish National Opera presents the nationwide tour of a new production of Peter Maxwell Davies’s chamber opera The Lighthouse. A Scottish lighthouse goes dark. A visiting supply ship finds the building in order. But the keepers have vanished without trace. Three singers in multiple roles explore the psychological state of the fractious men, relive an official investigation and project a supernatural explanation. The composer, who based the structure of the opera on the Tower of the Tarot, leaves no simple answers. Based on an actual event in December 1900. Sung in English with English subtitles
Never miss an event or new attraction in Cork.
