The First Child | Dublin Theatre Festival

Saturday, 9 October 2021

It all began with the child.

Following the sensational success of their first two operas, The Last Hotel and The Second Violinist, Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh join forces once again on the final instalment in their explosive trilogy of suburban horror.

The production brings together a world-class creative team with a cast of five singers, an actor, a dancer, a small children’s choir and Crash Ensemble, to imagine a terrifying story of lost innocence—a baby on a beach—and the sea.

For ages 16+. Contains loud noises, strobe lighting, abuse, violence, self-harm, death.

This production is funded by an Opera Projects and Production
Award from The Arts Council.

Tickets are sold using pod seating of predetermined sizes.
