'Elsewhere' Opera to be Performed in The Abbey Theatre, Dublin
Amy will be performing the role of Davnet in Michael Gallan's contemporary opera, 'Elsewhere' with French ensemble Miroirs Étendus in The Abbey Theatre, Dublin, this November.
Shortlisted for the FEDORA Opera Prize 2021, Elsewhere is based on the story of the world’s first Soviet commune outside the USSR, which existed for eleven days in the lunatic asylum of Monaghan town in Ireland in 1919. In a bid to win more humane working conditions, the staff of Monaghan Asylum barricaded the gates and declared their independence, revolutionising asylum care in the process. In a colourful and groundbreaking new opera, historical events unfold through the visions of a patient named Celine, who despite the passage of time remains “locked in” to the moment of the Soviet.
