Libretto MARK O’HALLORAN

Director TOM CREED

ABOUT

Scored for two principal singers and ten instrumentalists, Trade takes place in a guesthouse in Dublin’s north inner city. Based on the play on the same name by Mark O’Halloran, this one-act opera explores an intense encounter between a vulnerable and confused young male prostitute as he sits with a middle-aged client. The older man has blood on his shirt. A lot has happened since the two last met. 

 

A piece about duty, morality, and desire, Trade is the full-length commission awarded to emerging composer Emma O’Holloran as winner of BMP’s Next Generation Competition. 

Support

Trade is co-commissioned by Irish National Opera.

PRAISE FOR EMMA O'HALLORAN

“Some of the most unencumbered, authentic, and joyful music that I have heard in recent years,” 

- I Care If You Listen

"One of the most sought‑after opera stars of his generation, Nathan Gunn has generated as much press for his matinee‑idol looks as for his impressive lyric baritone and accomplished performances in a variety of roles."
