Plans for 2020
OCI’s plans for the current season included a return to the Killaloe Chamber Music Festival for the Irish première of Michael Nymann’s “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat”. However, the festival has sadly been cancelled as a result of the current Covid-19 crisis.
Later in the summer OCI will once again join forces with Kilkenny Arts Festival and the Akademie for Alte Musik Berlin to present a new production of Handel’s “Semele”. Led by the same creative team responsible for OCI’s critically acclaimed production of “The Return of Ulysses” in 2018 (Christian Curnyn, Patrick Mason, Paul Keogan & Catherine Fay), “Semele” is a collaboration with Sestina and generously supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
