The Hunger

A new opera by Donnacha Dennehy (The Last Hotel, The Second Violinist) featuring Katherine Manley and Iarla Ó Lionáird (The Gloaming) chronicles the tale of Asenath Nicholson who travelled in Ireland and provided relief to starving people during the Great Famine. Her harrowing first-person account Annals of the Famine in Ireland forms the basis of this work with director Tom Creed making his Abbey debut. Traditional songs dovetail with new music, while video interviews with Noam Chomsky, Paul Krugman, and others underscore the political roots of this tragedy that brought a nation to its knees.
