Opera Collective Ireland presents
Flight – an opera by Jonathan Dove

TUE 12 SEP
Live at The Everyman

Fresh from their Best Opera win for Handel’s Semele at the 2022 Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, Opera Collective Ireland presents Jonathan Dove’s timely, darkly comedic and moving opera Flight, which will have its Irish premiere in Dublin on 5 September.

An overnight success when first performed, Flight is loosely based on the real-life story of an Iranian refugee stranded at Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris for 18 years and his interaction with a group of storm-grounded travellers. The opera unfolds around the different characters who find themselves delayed in the terminal and their interaction with the refugee.

With an ensemble cast of 10 singers, the opera’s reflections on love and identity are presented with winning humour. Though composed 25 years ago, Flight continues to have a compelling relevance today.

Flight, with a vibrant young cast, will be directed by Stephen Medcalf and conducted by Wyn Davies. The production is designed by Maree Kearns and lighting by Kevin Smith. OCI are delighted to be collaborating with the Irish Chamber Orchestra on this project.
