Contemporary opera The Second Violinist integrates multilayered set and video

Modern opera The Second Violinist vividly portrays an inner landscape of social media, morbid fantasies and violent video games

The psychological disintegration of its central character, orchestral violinist Martin, is realised through a multilayered set and video design, with a score rich in amplified sounds, harmonies and overtones.

Winner of Best Opera at the Irish Times Theatre Awards, this is the latest collaboration between Irish playwright Enda Walsh and composer Donnacha Dennehy.
