Bajazet – The Irish National Opera will still tour later this month to the Lime Tree Theatre with Vivaldi’s Bajazet despite the restrictions.

Vivaldi’s Bajazet to Go Ahead at the Limerick’s Lime Tree Theatre

The Irish National Opera will still tour later this month to the Lime Tree Theatre with Vivaldi’s Bajazet despite the restrictions and difficulties with the pandemic. Limerick opera lovers can still experience this new production but at the earlier time of 5pm on Saturday, January 22.

As always INO is leading the way in creative, exciting new work to ensure opera lovers all over the country have the opportunity to fill the cultural emotional tank during these bleak days of January. This will definitely bring some joy and enjoyment for a few hours.

An extraordinary thriller set in a tense, politically charged environment. Powerful men and strong women negotiate their relationships as desires of the heart clash with rank and duty. If you liked the high-wire singing in INO’s Griselda in 2019, you’ll love the adrenalin rush of the instrumentally virtuosic vocal writing and show-stopping arias in Bajazet.

Vivaldi’s Bajazet is conducted by early music specialist Peter Whelan and features the acclaimed Irish Baroque Orchestra. Italian bass-baritone Gianluca Margheri sings the title role, with mezzo-soprano Niamh O’Sullivan as Asteria and sopranos Claire Booth and Aoife Miskelly as Irene and Idaspe, with counter tenors James Laing and Eric Jurenas as Tamerlano and  Andronicus. Bajazet is directed by Adele Thomas, with set and costume design by Molly O’Cathain and lighting design by Sinéad Wallace.

Bajazet is a co-production with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. After the tour in Ireland, this production will travel to the Royal Opera’s Linbury Theatre in February 2022.
