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
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
