Derek Ball workshop opera performance

Derek Ball

Composer Derek Ball presents scenes from his chamber opera Síle an tSléibhe in an unstaged workshop performance at The Back Loft, Dublin, on Tuesday, 4 September.

The recently completed piece is a story of love, loss and madness featuring an Irish text by the Donegal poet Cathal Ó Searcaigh. The drama is related by a solo soprano – Elizabeth Hilliard – accompanied by a trio of tin whistles and electroacoustic sound. The excerpts will be introduced by the composer, putting the story into context and talking about his music.
