LISMORE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014
PRESENTS



LISMORE CASTLE
SATURDAY 31ST MAY & SUNDAY 1ST JUNE


"We are the music-makers, Festival Food and Wine the dreamers of dreams...”,


wrote Arthur O’Shaughnessy in his poem entitled Ode. We invite you to come dream with us in Lismore this June Bank holiday weekend for the fifth annual Lismore Music Festival. Now in its 5th year the Lismore Music Festival is Ireland’s only Summer opera festival and continues to grow in size, reputation and audience numbers despite lack of funding. We have once again assembled an amazing cast and orchestra and would like to welcome for the first time the Piccolo Lasso Singers under the direction of Ite O’Donovan.

This year we present two performances (Saturday 31st May & Sunday 1st June) of an original production of one of the most beloved works in the operatic repertoire. Directed by Dieter Kaegi and Conducted by Marco Zambelli, Mozart’s Magic Flute is arguably one of the greatest and most popular operas ever written. It is a magical tale that takes us to the heart of one man’s search for love and his struggle to find truth. Our original production will be set in a Circus and we have collaborated with our friends in Fossetts Circus to create a truly original production of this wonderful opera to be sung in English with the LMF Chamber Orchestra.

The festival will again also dedicate it’s Dress Rehearsal to local school children as part of it’s Schools Education & Audience Development Programme with the generous support and assistance of the David Ross Foundation & Giancarla and Michael Alen Buckley We would like to thank the following for their continued support Lismore Castle, Salterbridge House, Cappoquin House and St. Cathage’s Cathedral.The Waterford County Enterprise Board, Failte Ireland, Waterford County Council, Power & Co. Fine Wines, Irish Examiner, RTE Lyricfm and RIAM. We would also like to thank the ‘Friends of Lismore’ and our retail partners. Download the LMF 2014 Official Flyer
