A HOST of comedy, opera, original theatre, music and, of course, panto are lined up as part of the Everyman’s autumn season.

The full programme has been revealed by the city centre theatre, with the new season coming on the back of a bumper summer, which included homegrown productions Asking for It and The Lonesome West.

Among the headline shows this Autumn is the world premiere of John O’Brien’s new opera The Nightingale and the Rose, based on the Oscar Wilde short story of the same name.

In December, the annual Christmas panto returns. This year, it is the turn of Cinderella.

As ever, the Everyman will also host a varied live entertainment programme.

Stand-up shows from Deirdre O’Kane, Colin Murphy, Waterford Whispers News, David O’Doherty, Jason Byrne and Chris Kent will run alongside musical events from Jack L and the Johnny Cash Roadshow, while the theatre will also play host to events as part of the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival and the Cork Film Festival later this year.

The Irish National Opera will visit the theatre twice with the Tales of Hoffmann and Orfeo ed Euridice, while a wide range of top-notch dance and theatre productions are also planned, including Junk Ensemble (Soldier Still), Philip Connaughton (Assisted Solo), Louise White (This is the Funeral of your Life) and For the Birds (Seahorse).

These are in addition to a wide range of touring theatre, including James Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Maeve Binchy’s Light a Penny Candle.
