Winner of Best Opera at the Irish Times Theatre Awards, this latest collaboration between Irish playwright Enda Walsh and composer Donnacha Dennehy switches between multiple timelines. It marries multilayered set and video design with a score, rich in amplified sounds, harmonies and overtones, played live by the dynamic music group, Crash Ensemble. Lyrical and ethereal singing by three soloists and a 16-strong chorus contrasts with Aaron Monaghan’s central performance, physically fraught, essentially wordless and utterly involving.
