Welcome to Glasthule Opera
Since we began in 2008 we have had real summer festival weather and enjoyed Prosecco and Strawberries 'n Cream before and at the interval of the opera in the sunshine looking over Dublin Bay. This year we are presenting a double delight with the Summer Opera Gala in June, 2014 followed by the Glasthule Opera Festival 18th and 20th September, 2014 in the Pavilion Theatre!.
DLR Glasthule Opera is here again promoting Irish singers, conductors and directors. The casts are drawn from singers who are in various stages of their career and development from international names to those aspiring to be professional singers.
DLR County Council is committed to supporting the arts and continues to do so even in these dark days of economic gloom. We gratefully acknowledge their support.
September 2014 is our big date for a spectacular triple bill of fun-filled Opera sung in English! The programme will include three sparkling operas SUSANNA'S SECRET (IS SHE FAITHFUL?) - WOLF-FERRARI - LE 66 (IS IT THE WINNING NUMBER?) - OFFENBACH - A HAND OF BRIDGE (ARE THEIR MINDS ON THE CARDS?) - BARBER. A cast of Ireland's finest singers, conducted by David Brophy and directed by Helene Montague.
The festival is administered by volunteers. The productions are funded by a grant from DLRCoCo, the box office proceeds and by the support of 'Friends of Glasthule Opera' who make an annual subscription. Please consider becoming a 'Friend; and help us continue supporting and ecouraging our brightest singers.
Please remember Moliére's famous words:
... of all the noises known to man, opera is the most expensive
Don't forget to book!

It will be the support of the public as friends that will ensure the success and full realisation of the project. Given the resources Anne-Marie will work tirelessly and with spirit and enthusiasm to great effect. If you wish to become a Founding Friend please click here to learn more
