Samuel Beckett Bridge in the heart of Dublin’s docklands transformed into an incredible stage last night, as the Tiger Dublin Fringe festival presented HARP | A River Cantata.
Produced by Matt Smyth and directed by Conor Hanratty, the spectacular open-air opera was based on the story of the Harp of Dagda, an old Irish mythical tale where a harp of great power could restore harmony, align the four seasons and bring great joy to the nation. When the Harp was stolen, it would not sing, but when the Tuatha Dé Danann reclaimed it, order was restored and a great celebration ensued.
EILE Magazine will be keeping an eye on highlights of the Tiger Dublin Fringe’s events throughout the festival. For more information about Tiger Dublin Fringe, visit fringefest.com.
