Irish National Opera's 20 Shots of Opera series features 20 new compact operas from composers in Ireland - watch Verballing, with music from David Coonan and text from Dylan Coburn Gray, above:

A Garda is coached on how to answer awkward questions. It's awkward. Awkward question for you: what's the difference between answering truthfully and telling the truth? Another one: what's the difference between self-defence and pre-emptive offence? Last one, promise: do you trust Gardaí always know the difference?

Starring Amy Ní Fhearraigh.
