The Last Hotel
The Last Hotel unites two of Ireland’s most fascinating artists, multi award-winning playwright Enda Walsh and composer Donnacha Dennehy in a new chamber opera from Landmark Productions and Wide Open Opera about life, death, duty and guilt.
Walsh’s reputation as a chronicler of the darker side of the Irish psyche has been forged through works such as The Walworth Farce, Misterman and, most recently, Ballyturk. Dennehy is a composer of urgent, searching music that combines post minimalist overtones with a very Irish sensibility.
As the opera begins, a man silently mops the floor – the water bloody. The hotel room he’s supposed to be preparing is not ready yet. A woman is meeting a man and his wife in the hotel’s car park. All three are nervous. Tonight there’ll be a death.
The 12 strong Crash Ensemble is conducted by André de Ridder with a cast that includes baritone Robin Adams, sopranos Claudia Boyle and Katherine Manley and renowned Irish actor Mikel Murfi.
