Forced apart by their mother, a young couple determines to find a way to unite themselves in love. Raymond Deane sets this intimate story of heartbreak and reconcilliation, based on an 8th century Chinese play, to music in a world premiere opera from Opera Theatre Company. One of Ireland's most innovative and accomplished music-theatre companies, Opera Theatre Company is known for its lean, expert stagings of opera works.

Raymond Deane, one of Ireland's leading contemporary composers, has a growing international reputation for his operatic and instrumental works. Commissioned by Opera Theatre Company, The Wall of Cloud is a 90 minute chamber opera whose creative team includes some of Irish theatre's most promising young talents, as well as distinguished singers Nicola Sharkey, Eugene Ginty, Colette McGahon and Sinéad Blanchfield, and the seven players of the Opera Theatre Ensemble.

"Raymond Deane - has been opening ears in and beyond Ireland for some time". The London Independent
