Join The Belfast Ensemble for an unforgettable evening in The Grand Opera House as they share the stage with Marc Almond for a two part concert featuring the critically acclaimed Abomination: A DUP Opera and the multi-award winning song cycle Ten Plagues.
Act One - The orchestra of the Belfast Ensemble and a cast of operatic soloists, including the Canadian soprano Rebecca Caine, take to the stage to perform in concert their award-winning opera Abomination: A DUP Opera. Over 30 performers give the first full orchestral version of this internationally applauded original verbatim work. Conducted by the composer and sung in full, this work has taken the UK and Ireland’s classical music scene by storm and recently played to packed houses at London’s Southbank Centre. It represents the best of internationally applauded NI work and has not yet been heard in its own opera house!
Act Two - Marc Almond, for one performance only, joins composer Conor Mitchell (piano) on stage to perform the multi-award winning song cycle Ten Plagues. Written by Mitchell and world renowned playwright Mark Ravehill, this astonishing song cycle, originally created at the Royal Court, first took London and Edinburgh by storm in 2011, when it headlined the Traverse Theatre and Wilton’s Music Hall seasons. Chronicling one man’s journey through plague, this intense one man tour de force carries even more power in a post-covid world. Marc Almond, a close collaborator of Mitchell’s, has not performed this work in nearly 10 years.
A once in a lifetime evening set to live long in the memory. Not to be missed!
The event takes place at the Grand Opera House in Belfast on 17 October 2023 and tickets are available now from:
