Irish National Opera presents: Horse Ape Bird, a brand new youth opera by David Coonan and Dylan Coburn Gray.

The opera tells three true stories about scientists adopting animals, treating them like humans, then abandoning them when they fail to learn to act like them.

Horse Ape Bird is conducted by Elaine Kelly, directed by Zoe Ní Riordáin and features mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty and soprano Amy Ni Fhearraigh together with a 20 member youth chorus drawn from Kildare and Meath.

Horse Ape Bird is produced in association with Music Generation Kildare, Music Generation Meath & Solstice Arts Centre, in partnership with the Music Department, Maynooth University, supported by St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth.
