Community Football Commission © Irish National Opera i
In 2021, INO would like to develop a version of this work, specifically for digital projection, to be played in cities throughout Europe where major football tournaments are taking place. The work would be structured as a collection of 5 individual vignettes for projection. Each vignette will consist of a orchestral work combing either Choral, vocal or recorded sounded with an accompanying filmic element and will feature supporters, players and other individuals involved in the football community in Dublin as performers.
The project is designed specifically to expose communities to the world of opera (both in a participatory sense and as an audience) who otherwise may have never come into contact with the art form.
