An Opera for Carlow Insert 2



This is the second in our series following a community arts project in Carlow which is an opera being crafted by conductor Fergus Sheil and written by the Belfast composer Brian Irvine in collaboration with the people of Carlow. Next May the opera will be staged in Carlow in one of Ireland's newest and most impressive new theatres - the George Bernard Shaw Theatre at Visual. The opera will feature the stories and voices of Carlow town and county. We'll be tracking the progress of the opera here on In Tempo over the coming months. Community youth choir, Aspiro, will be one of the community groups taking part in the opera. Now we find out what the choir members and its director, Mary Amond O'Brien, think about this unique project.
