June 2017 The Second Violinist - Fedora Prize and premiere performances
Thrilled and humbled that The Second Violinist, my new opera with Enda Walsh, produced by Landmark Productions and Wide Open Opera, has just won the Fedora Prize. The prize will help with future international productions of the opera. In the meantime, dates have been announced for premiere performances at the Galway International Arts Festival in July, and the Dublin Theatre Festival in October. Further performances will be announced over the coming season. As for other news, there are two new releases this month: an arrangement of Rambling Boys for Olivia Chaney and the Kronos Quartet for Kronos's new Nonesuch disc, Folk Songs, and the debut recording of As an Nós for Crash Ensemble's Ghosts album on Bedroom Community.
