About The Intelligence Park

Gerald Barry creates operas like no other – brilliant, surreal and often laugh-out-loud funny. Not seen in London since 1990, Barry’s first opera The Intelligence Park comes to the Linbury ahead of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground on the Main Stage later in the Season. The setting is Dublin in 1753, where a composer’s work on an opera is disrupted and intensified when he falls in love with the lead castrato, who at the same time elopes with the composer’s fiancée causing fantasy and reality to become mixed. The music, scored for chamber orchestra and conducted here by Jessica Cottis, is startling in every aspect of its range, making extravagant virtuoso demands of the six performers. Sung in English Age Recommendation: 12+ This production features adult themes and includes some violence
