Irish National Opera: Bajazet by Vivaldi

An extraordinary thriller set in a tense, politically charged environment. Powerful men and strong women negotiate their relationships as desires of the heart clash with rank and duty. If you liked the high-wire singing in INO’s Griselda in 2019, you’ll love the adrenalin rush of the instrumentally virtuosic vocal writing and show-stopping arias in Bajazet.

Vivaldi’s Bajazet is conducted by early music specialist Peter Whelan and features the acclaimed Irish Baroque Orchestra. Italian bass-baritone Gianluca Margheri sings the title role, with mezzo-sopranos Niamh O’Sullivan and Claire Booth as Asteria and Irene, Northern Irish soprano Aoife Miskelly sings Idaspe with counter tenors James Laing and Eric Jurenas as Tamerlano and Andronicus. Bajazet is directed by Adele Thomas, with set and costume design by Molly O’Cathain and lighting design by Sinéad Wallace.

Bajazet is a co-production with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. After the tour in Ireland, this production will travel to the Royal Opera’s Linbury Theatre in February 2022.
