  Occupying a musical space all of its own between musical theatre and opera, The Dead is a thrilling new theatrical presentation of James Joyce’s iconic short story of the same name. In an elegant, pared-back staging, four singers accompanied by a string quartet conjure the poignant atmosphere of a Christmas party inhabited by Joyce’s vibrant characters. By turns evocative, moving, and witty, The Dead taps into the deep vein of musical references in the original story, taking the audience on a journey exploring life, death, and above all, love. After a sold-out and critically acclaimed run in Ireland, The Dead is ready to be shared with audiences worldwide.
