Opera Community Connect

We believe in our work and want to share it. We know that many people might think of opera as a museum piece or not for them. We want to change that perception and to amplify the idea that opera is for now and for everyone. We look forward to growing and diversifying our existing audience base, bringing people together to discover and enjoy opera in real life and through new media platforms.

We work in the anticipation of a future where people in Limerick and far beyond have the opportunity to know and love opera.

Connect Concerts

We know that not everyone can make it to our productions, go to a concert hall or enjoy time in a theatre. Let us come to you with our Opera Community Connect Concerts. Our Opera Connect Concerts allow us to share in the joy and fun of live music performance outside of the conventional performance spaces.

Christmas Concerts 2022

Opera Workshop singers and pianists visited a number of residential and day centres in the Limerick region presenting festive programmes of favourite carols, arias, light opera, Irish songs, promising plenty of Christmas cheer.

See what others had to say...

“Our Residents were thrilled that you gave of your time to perform at the Home. It lifted their spirits to have you entertain them as so many cannot get out and about to these beautiful events. The respect you showed by conversing with them was a wonderful experience and one that they chatted about for some time afterwards.”
