Coach House at No. 2 Pery Square
Performed over the Halloween weekend, 27th October – 30th October 2022.
Opera Workshop presented Twisted Tales, a short, scratch production of contemporary operas by Fiona Linnane and Luke Byrne, directed by Shirley Keane.
Set in the atmospheric surrounds of the Coach House in the garden of No 2 Pery Square, the Opera Workshop ensemble added an operatic twist to Limerick’s Halloween fare with tales of portentous old dears, contentious wills, wild geese and ships lost at sea.
Operas included ‘Off Tuskar’ and ‘The Hag of Loughrask’ by Linanne and ‘Ashes’ and ‘Bloody Murder’ by Byrne.
