The Last Hotel
A New Opera by Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh

Co-Presented with Prototype and Irish Arts Center

January 8 – 17

at St. Ann’s Warehouse
45 Water Street
Brooklyn, New York 11201

 

A man silently mops the floor with a bucket full of bloody water. He prepares a room that’s not yet ready for its next guest. A woman meets a man and his wife in the parking lot. All three are nervous. Tonight there will be a death.

The Last Hotel unites two of Ireland’s most fascinating artists, multi award-winning playwright Enda Walsh and composer Donnacha Dennehy in a new chamber opera. Walsh’s reputation as a chronicler of the darker side of the Irish psyche has been forged through works such as The Walworth Farce, Misterman and, most recently, Ballyturk. Dennehy is a composer of urgent, searching music that combines post minimalist overtones with a very Irish sensibility.

A thrilling and groundbreaking performance evoking themes of life and death, duty and accountability, The Last Hotel reunites Irish Arts Center with our frequent collaborators Landmark Productions (Mark O’Rowe’s Howie the Rookie, Deirdre Kinahan’s These Halcyon Days) and St. Ann’s Warehouse, with whom we presented a memorial tribute to the late Seamus Heaney during our 2013 PoetryFest. The production is co-produced by one of Ireland's foremost opera companies, Wide Open Opera, and the cast includes the extraordinary Mikel Murfi, who returns to New York following his acclaimed performance in his play The Man In The Woman’s Shoes.

The Last Hotel is the fifth Enda Walsh work St. Ann’s Warehouse has brought to New York, following The Walworth Farce, The New Electric Ballroom, Penelope, and Misterman.

Running Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

 

The Last Hotel is supported by piece by piece productions, Culture Ireland, and The Arts Council, Ireland.
