The Scorched Earth Trilogy

Book Now
6:40 pm

The Scorched Earth Trilogy, co-produced by Dumbworld and Irish National Opera, is a large scale projected Opera with audio experienced through your headphones transmitted by Isolde, a groundbreaking new mobile app.

The operas, created by Brian Irvine and John McIlduff, explore our fractured relationship with the Earth, the environment, climate change, pollution, consumerism, political motivation and governance as well as notions of living, care, hope and togetherness. They are a mesmerising tapestry of street art, music, performance, and animation.

The award winning team plunge us into a world of high-octane orchestral opera that fuses wide screen epic with visceral, tender and exhilarating moments of singing and animation. The work features projected video and sound installation, experienced through personal headphones with the audio transmitted by Isolde, a ground-breaking new mobile app currently in its beta testing phase.
