Opera Workshop Christmas Shows 2019

Opera Workshop are constantly running events and projects. Most recently they got involved in a partnership project with Hands in Harmony Deaf Community Choir on a performance and film project that combines Irish Sign Language and music. 

Opera Workshop was set up in 2017 by Shirley Keane. Based in Limerick the company aims to provide the focus for a collective of like-minded artists interested in testing their skills, developing new productions, seeking opportunities to experiment, develop and share innovative ideas in opera performance. 

Opera Workshop is Limerick’s first resident opera company.   Limerick has had a love affair with opera over many years and now Opera Workshop is hoping to reinvigorate old favourites and break new ground in opera performance for Limerick city and county and across the Mid-west.
