About Us

Opera Workshop
Making opera in unexpected places and in unexpected ways.

Founded in 2017 by Shirley Keane, Opera Workshop commissions new works and re-imagines familiar opera, mounting productions in unexpected places and in unexpected ways. Our unique ensemble approach to making opera inspires artists who want to work with us and excites audiences, many of whom experience opera for the first time. We are proud that our work stimulates new perceptions of opera: what it is and who it is for.

As champions of opera, we engage with other arts organisations, artists and emerging talent. We believe in sharing what we know and deeply value the ideas and learning we gather in return.

Opera Workshop was created as our purpose states, to surprise and delight audiences and artists with opera forged in Limerick for the world.

Imbued with a spirit of adventure and possibility, we always seek to share joy.

Future Plans

We aim to inspire artists and excite audiences, stimulating new perceptions of opera and all that it can be.
