Shelter Me From The Rain – An Opera For Carlow

Love and weather – probably the two things Irish people obsess about more than anything else.

Milibars are rising and warm fronts are approaching in this tale of love stories of the people of Carlow. Commissioned and developed by Carlow Local Authorities Arts Office through the Per Cent for Art scheme, this opera is performed by a specially assembled company of over 100 singers of all backgrounds from Carlow and surrounding areas. Also including Aspiro and accompanied by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, this new opera has been specially written by Brian Irvine (music) and John McIlduff (words) with musical direction by Fergus Sheil.

Composer, Brian Irvine.
