Three years in the planning, one year in production, ‘An Opera for Carlow’ is the story of an extraordinary and unique community music and arts project led by conductor Fergus Sheil. Sheil, and his creative team composer Brian Irvine and director and writer John McIlduff, set up to create an opera from scratch working with the people of Carlow. On May 5th in the GB Shaw Theatre in Visual that opera ‘Shelter me from the Rain’ was premiered and this documentary produced by Athena Media is the story of the journey to that night and how the birth of that opera changed the lives of everyone involved.
