THE LAST HOTEL
A New Opera by Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh
Conducted by André de Ridder | Alan Pierson
JAN 8 – 17, 2016
Tickets start at $51
Runtime: 80 minutes
A beautiful woman meets a couple in a hotel parking lot by the sea. They are there to assist with her suicide. A kinetic concierge will be their witness. Enda Walsh’s first opera finds humor in both the banal and the dire — from the mundane everyday to choices of life vs. death, and Donnacha Dennehy’s thrumming, pulsating score hopscotches between delicacy and intensity in the raw, tender The Last Hotel.
Opening Night Party | FRI JAN 8
Voices On TalkBack | TUE JAN 12
