The Deadly World of Opera

Axis, Sunday 14th April 2019

The Deadly World of Opera – Why do opera singers make such an unusual sound? What exactly is an aria? Can I clap at an opera? Why does everyone sing in Italian? What’s Pavarotti’s deal? Does the seminal 1975 album A Night at the Opera by Queen have anything to do with actual opera?

Join Irish National Opera in this free show as they introduce you to a truly amazing art form. Over the course of an hour, artists from the INO studio will perform operatic music spanning several hundred years as well as guiding you through some of the curious terminology and traditions. Absolutely no prior experience of opera is needed, just a willingness to try something different.
