It doesn’t get more atmospheric than this.
The 1700’s neo-classical Triskel Christchurch will provide the backdrop to a new outdoor theatre set to open at the end of July.
The venue’s private courtyard, just off South Main Street, will be transformed by the addition of a roof, a stage, sound desk and lighting rigs, with bench-style seating for socially distanced audiences of less than 50 people.
A source told Yay Cork that an intriguing schedule of shows will offer “a mix of classical, folk, singer-songwriter, comedy, visual arts and more” from Thursday to Sunday every week, with three shows each day. The Triskel Café operated by Brook Foods will offer picnic packages so audience members can dine under the stars as they enjoy the entertainment.
The Triskel Courtyard is set to open on July 29th for four weeks, with a full programme to be announced soon.
In the meantime, the 6 Summertime Concerts Series is back at Triskel Arts Centre with a programme of lunchtime recitals kicking off on Saturday, July 17th in Triskel Christchurch.
The series (every Saturday at 1pm) features a wide repertoire of jazz, classical and improvised music from contemporary Irish artists. Matthew Berrill and Mike Nielsen will present the first concert of the series this Saturday, with a programme of new music and old favourites.
