Fionn - The Opera


Librettist and poet Eugene Kaminsky and composer of symphonic music Nissim Khalifa would like to introduce their never-before produced Irish-myth-based opera! A dream Nissim had envisioned for a long time, almost 20 years. Now they started a crowdfunding campaign to complete the financing in order to make this dream come true.

Over the course of the last two years this dream has finally become a reality — a fully composed and orchestrated opera of Fionn McCool. The opera draws inspiration from traditional Irish music, especially Sean-nós, creating a novel combination between the opera genre and Irish tradition and folklore.
