New opera planned!

The Arts Council/An chomairle ealaíon has awarded Raymond Deane a development grant for an opera based on Emma Donoghue's play Trespasses. The opera, provisionally entitled Vagabones, is slated for production by Irish Youth Opera in September 2018. Its subject is the trial for witchcraft of Florence Newton in Youghal, Co Cork, in 1661 - one of only two authenticated witchcraft trials to have occurred in Ireland.
