The eircom Dublin Theatre Festival presents the world premiere of an extraordinary music-theatre collaboration with Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney. Conceived and directed by the highly innovative and versatile English Director, Deborah Warner, The Diary of One Who Vanished is a bittersweet song-cycle composed by Leoš Janácek

Inspired by a true story, Diary dramatises the inner struggle of a young farmer tempted away from his family by a bewitching gypsy. Fully staged, the production stars tenor Ian Bostridge, "a lieder-singer of supreme refinement - easliy the most accomplished of the younger generation". (The London Independent)

Following it's Irish premiere, the production will embark on a major international tour - don't miss your chance to see it first.

Please note the production lasts for approximately fifty minutes with no interval.

"Ian Bostridge is the boy wonder of British singing, wondrous is a barely adequate epithet for the voice of this tenor"
