Following the wonderful success of the Ensemble devised ‘The Trouble with Virtue’ which was performed at Limerick’s Hunt Museum in 2018, Opera Workshop developed a 90 minute show, extending this fun-filled, wry and moving, one act production.
The Trouble With Virtue was performed in Limerick city, Listowel and Kilmallock over the Valentines weekend in February 2020. ‘The Trouble with Virtue’ draws on the worlds of opera and literature. Shakespeare, O’Brien, Yeats, all have something to say on the subject and their words and poetry are laced through this Opera Workshop production with the songs, scenes and arias of Mozart, Bizet and Saint-Saëns and with contemporary works by Limerick composer Fiona Linnane.
