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 years programme will include arias and ensembles from great operatic composers in an evening of best-loved music on Thursday, 21st September, 2017 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 2017 is our big date for a spectacular programme. Conductor David Brophy and the Glasthule Opera Orchestra lead a host of Ireland's next generation of Opera Stars:- Sopranos Amy Ni Fhearraigh and Caoimhe Reynolds, Mezzo Martha O'Brien, Tenor Peter O'Reilly, Baritone David Howes, Brass Robert McAllister in an exciting evening of arias and ensembles from the great operatic composers: Mozart, Donizetti, Puccini, Verdi as well as a rare opportunity to hear favourites from 'Irish Ring' including 'I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls', 'Scenes That Are Brightest' and ' The Moon Hath Raised Her Lamp Above'.

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!
