The Irish Times is delighted to offer one lucky winner, a pair of tickets to INO & ANU’s new opera Old Ghosts at the Museum of Literature Ireland on Thursday, February 2nd and an overnight stay at The Dean Dublin. Two lucky runner-ups will receive a one year membership to MoLI.

February 2nd marks the 101st anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s literary classic Ulysses. Throughout 2022, ANU, Landmark Productions and MoLI presented, curated, and commissioned a nationwide series of multidisciplinary artistic experiments entitled Ulysses 2.2.

From visual arts to dance, performance to opera, installation to film, theatre for young audiences, live music performances, and more, Ulysses 2.2 charted the odyssey taken by a rich and diverse gathering of Irish artists, thinkers, and creators, in their search for a contemporary response to the eighteen episodes of Joyce’s masterpiece. See the responses here.

Old Ghosts is the final episode of Ulysses 2.2, the world premiere of a new opera from Irish National Opera and ANU, with newly commissioned music by Evangelia Rigaki and text by Marina Carr. Old Ghosts stars Christopher Bowen, Jade Phoenix, William Gaunt and Doreen Curran, is directed by Louise Lowe and conducted by Elaine Kelly, and runs at MoLI from February 2nd - 4th inclusive, with all performances now sold out.
