FEDORA Platform supports a new creation 'Dust' by the Irish National Opera

In a year of challenges and upheaval, Irish National Opera’s 20 Shots of Opera turns a spotlight on creativity and makes 2020 a year to remember for positive reasons. Conceived, composed, recorded, and filmed in just six months, these 20 short operas showcase the breadth and depth of Irish operatic talent. 

'Dust' is one of these productions. It is a ballad of extinction, biodiversity loss, and ecological collapse written by Benedict Schlepper-Connolly. This quiet lament from the near future is told beautifully by the mezzo-soprano Michelle O'Rourke. 

Take a shot of the opera 'Dust' by the Irish National Opera here. 

Special thanks to the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union for making this possible.
