Opera in the Park
As part of its on-going success in outdoor opera, Dublin City Council is introducing a new series of operatic performances for the month of June in Merrion Square Park. 'Opera in the Park' will showcase 4 fantastic concerts, with performances taking place at 1pm each Friday in June. On 21 June the performance will take place at 8pm to celebrate Midsummer. 'Opera in the Park' is an initiative of Dublin City Council as part of its remit to animate the city with the best of art and culture.
These performances are also supported by Fáilte Ireland to promote the cultural interests in this part of Georgian Dublin to visitors. Speaking on the performances, Ray Yeates, Arts Officer with Dublin City Council, said 'Dublin City Council's Opera in the Open performances over the last few years have become a fixture in the Dublin's cultural calendar. Our usual annual 'Opera in the Open' will of course return for the month of August. All are welcome.'
