Irish National Opera presents: Horse Ape Bird

A one-act youth opera (in three parts). 

Can a horse do maths? Can an ape learn sign language? Can a parrot have a concept of the colour blue?

David Coonan and Dylan Coburn Gray’s new youth opera, with its chorus of teenagers, asks the question: Are animals animals because they lack something we possess, or vice versa? Ambitious, playful, thoughtful, weird, Horse Ape Bird is for anyone who has ever wondered if their dog loves them back.

Produced by Irish National Opera, Music Generation Kildare, Music Generation Meath & Solstice. In partnership with The Music Department, Maynooth University, supported by St. Patrick's College, Maynooth
