Opera at Solstice Arts Centre, Navan

Powder Her Face by Thomas Adès - Irish National Opera

From: 1st March 2018
To: 1st March 2018
Irish National Opera presents Powder Her Face by Thomas Adès. Notorious socialite Margaret Whigham's sensational 1963 divorce from the Duke of Argyll was pure tabloid fodder. Headlines of her extravagances enthralled and titillated a gossip-hungry public in what was perhaps the world's first modern-day sex scandal.


The Tales of Hoffmann - Irish National Opera

From: 20th September 2018
To: 20th September 2018
Offenbach was dubbed “the Mozart of the Champs Élysées” by Rossini. His lyrical, effervescent final opera, left unfinished at his death, with its plot of strange, outrageous loves, an ever-present evil genius, not to mention the famous Barcarolle (borrowed from an earlier work) and an aria for a wind-up mechanical doll, is a treasure-trove for an imaginative director.
