Opera in the Open

Wood Quay Amphitheatre, Thursday 1st August - Thursday 22nd August 2019

Opera in the Open is an initiative of Dublin City Council that presents live performances of operatic work in the open air in Dublin City Centre.

This much loved annual Opera Season takes place for the first 4 Thursdays of the month of August at the Dublin City Council Civic Office Amphitheatre, Wood Quay, Dublin 8. Each performance of Opera is undertaken in an abridged format, is narrated in English and lasts one hour during lunchtime. There is no fee for attending these performances. The Amphitheatre includes a raised stage, surrounded by a seated area and grass verge, ideal for a picnic lunch. The Amphitheatre is easily accessible from Winetavern Street and space is made available for wheelchair users.

Opera in the Open proves, beyond a doubt, that there is a significant audience for Opera in Dublin. Nestled in the heart of the city, what better way to soak up this beautiful summer in Dublin than to catch an aria or two at lunchtime every Thursday during the month of August.

Please note there is no Opera in the Open on August 29th.
