I am thrilled to announce that I will be performing in Michael Gallen’s upcoming opera Elsewhere.
Elsewhere tells the story of the Soviet established in the Monaghan asylum in 1919. It is a powerful work which weaves the stories of the inmates, their carers and their families with a broader exploration of the experience of mental illness and the stigma it still carries.
Elsewhere has been nominated for the prestigious Fedora Opera Prize. You can lend your support by voting for the project here.
Two other Irish projects have also been nominated. Irish National Opera for Out of the Ordinary in the digital category and Wexford Festival Opera for Synapses in the education category. You can support all three projects so vote now!
Elsewhere will premiere in the Abbey Theatre in Autumn 2021 with performances to follow in Monaghan and Rouen.
