The Intelligence Park will be presented in concert performance at IMMA on Wednesday 18th by Crash Ensemble, conducted by Richard Baker and a cast of distinguished singers: Roderick Williams, John Daszak, Stephen Richardson, Sarah Gabriel, Andrew Watts, Lore Lizenberg and Gavin Jones.
This will be a rare opportunity to hear composer Gerald Barry’s 1990 opera The Intelligence Park – “one of the most original pieces of music to come out of Ireland this century” according to the Irish Times .
This concert is part of a series of events marking the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s 20th birthday: more details of these are on the Museum’s website.
In the following feature Gerald Barry talks to Vincent Woods during rehearsals at the National Concert Hall, and we hear some extracts from a BBC production of the Intelligence Park, published by NMC records.
