To achieve great things, two things are needed;
a plan, and not quite enough time.

OPERA: Least Like The Other

Galway Arts Festival

Black Box Theatre, Dyke Rd, Terryland, Galway

Naomi returns to Ireland for the world premiere of LEAST LIKE THE OTHER, an explosive and thought–provoking work of experimental music theatre, tracing the fragmented events of the life of Rosemary Kennedy. Naomi will be joined by a cast of two actors, Stephanie Dufresne and Ronan Leahy, and a chamber ensemble of fourteen musicians in this premiere production, presented by the Galway Arts Festival. Composed by Brian Irvine and directed by Netia Jones, the piece will be conducted by Irish National Opera's artistic director Fergus Sheil.

With raw power and focus, O’Connell
made the twisted Lady Macbeth loom large
in the intimate setting of the concert hall.
