Musicals & Opera 2016


“Kathleen Ní Houlihan” by WB Yeats with an original score and directed by Maura Flannery.

In honour of the 1916 centenary, and the €1,000,000 refurbishment, Maura has composed a musical score in a reworking of the celebrated nationalist drama. The play was performed in the Athenaeum a number of times over the last one hundred years and was highly significant in the narrative of the 1916 Rising. Yeats himself lamented: “Did that play of mine send out a certain men the English shot?”
