THE DEAD: An Opera (Video on Demand)
Breda Cashe Productions Presents
ABOUT THE SHOW
Producer Breda Cashe is delighted to bring the acclaimed musical drama based on James Joyce’s best-loved short story – The Dead, An Opera – to audiences around the world for a limited time only. A recording of the performance, captured at Dublin's iconic Gaiety Theatre is available to watch, on-demand, for seven days from the 16th August.
The Dead, an original production of the Performance Corporation, occupies a musical space all of its own between opera and music theatre. This production features a sterling cast of Suxannah De Wrixon, John Molloy, Kathy Rose O’ Brien and Rachel O’ Byrne, accompanied by a quartet of Katie O’ Connor, Jane Hughes, Una O Kane and Aoife Durnin.
The piece taps into the deep vein of musical references running through the original story, taking us on a journey exploring life, love and death. Acclaimed Irish composer Ellen Cranitch and award-winning playwright Tom Swift have created a pared back musical telling of Joyce’s classic story that is by turns theatrical, evocative and moving.
Directed by Jo Mangan, four singers accompanied by a string quartet conjure the atmosphere of a Christmas party inhabited by Joyce’s vibrant characters. The production team also Set Designer Niamh Lunny / Kevin McFadden, Costume Designer Niamh Lunny and Lighting Designer Kevin McFadden
