If you fancy a bit of culture on a Friday afternoon then head on over to Merrion Square this June. Dublin City Council who hosted the operas in the grounds behind their offices on Wood Quay last year have organised them to be held in the beautiful setting of Merrion Square this year. It is a perfect introduction to opera as it is casual and you can come and go as you please. Nearby office workers can come in their lunch hour. Last year was very popular with seasoned park audiences bringing deckchairs so come prepared!
The programme under artistic director David Wray is:
7th June @ 1pm Puccini's La Boheme
14th June @ 1pm Verdi's Rigoletto
21st June @ 8pm Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro
28th June @ 1pm Bizet's Carmen
