Irish National Opera return to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre this March with their production of Richard Strauss's ravishing Der Rosenkavalier - and we've got tickets to give away!

Love and lust. Culture and crudity. Disguise and deceit. Masters and servants. Opulence to die for. Raging hormones fuel the aristocratic intrigues in Richard Strauss's indulgently Viennese celebration of the extravagant lifestyle of a bygone age...

The production features three of Ireland's greatest singers on stage together for the very first time — sopranos Celine Byrne as Marschallin, Claudia Boyle as Sophie and mezzo-soprano Paula Murrihy as Octavian. The formidable cast also includes German bass Andreas Bauer Kanabas as Baron Ochs and Colombian César Cortés in the role of Italian Tenor.

Der Rosenkavalier will play a limited run of four performances only at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Monday 5th / Tuesday 7th / Thursday 9th / Saturday 11th March 2023 - find out more here.
