Abomination: A DUP Opera centres on the scandalous live radio interview given by Northern Irish politician, Iris Robinson, when she referred to homosexuality as an ‘abomination’, instantly reigniting the equality debate.

With a high-impact, multi-disciplinary style, the Belfast Ensemble has taken this moment in queer Irish history and wrapped it within a web of incendiary historical comments by DUP members on the subject of gay rights and marriage equality. With shockingly theatrical effect they challenge the power of words in the hand of the powerful.

Contemporary, political, comic and emotionally complex, this riotous and revolutionary performance redefines what a 21st-century opera can say, and why...

Conducted by acclaimed composer Conor Mitchell, the cast includes the internationally renowned soprano, Rebecca Caine, and the orchestral forces of The Belfast Ensemble.
