Irish National Opera
A co-production with the Royal Opera House.
In partnership with Irish Baroque Orchestra
An extraordinary thriller. A dark, tense, claustrophobic environment. Powerful men, strong women. Desires of the heart clashing with rank and duty. If you liked the high-wire singing in INO’s Vivaldi Griselda last year, you’ll love the adrenalin rush of the instrumentally virtuosic vocal writing and show-stopping arias in his Bajazet.

“a smooth, warm tone and manic energy, tearing up the stage with every appearance” bachtrack.com on Filippo Mineccia
“Rachel Kelly’s coloratura dazzled”
“Musical rewards abound in Bajazet, with storm arias . . . battle arias . . . rage arias and nature arias.”
Opera News [New York]
“This stunning work”
“It’s probably his best opera score”
“Bajazet proves he’s a very interesting opera composer who for many years has been unfairly known only for his instrumental music.”
