MODERN OPERA ABOUT OBSESSION

A sensational modern opera, The Second Violinist is a brooding thriller electrified by an otherworldly, almost compulsive score, the result of an artistic partnership between world-renowned Irish playwright Enda Walsh – co-author of Bowie’s musical Lazarus – and composer Donnacha Dennehy.

SOLACE IN MUSIC

The Second Violinist is about an ordinary person whose life is ruled by social media, morbid fantasies and violent video games. Seeking solace and beauty in a grim world, the violin player turns to the music of Italian Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo, only to have it become an obsession. The Second Violinist won the prestigious FEDORA–GENERALI award in 2017.
