Bluebeard's Castle

Sung in Hungarian with English surtitles

“a masterpiece, a musical geyser of sixty minutes of compressed tragedy” - Zoltán Kodály, 1921

Bluebeard and his new wife Judith are drawn into the darkness. Once they enter his castle and the gates are closed, there is no turning back. They must both continue further, but the landscape he’s made is made of blood...

“Paula Murrihy remains relentlessly in the spotlight with eloquent expressiveness – hunting, creeping, crawling over the stage, dancing with the ensemble and singing easily and flexibly, just as is required... She embodies an almost inexhaustible range of characteristics: sexy, saucy, lascivious, seductive, cold blooded, self-centred, stubborn, strong” - Opernnetz
“Joshua Bloom, dashing and larger than life” - Opera

PRESENTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE DUBLIN THEATRE FESTIVAL
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH RTÉ CONCERT ORCHESTRA
