About the Event

Event Details

Join Djinda Boodja & Curate on Day 10 of the WOW Festival for our Shadow Puppet Opera & Workshop!

Curate and Djinda Boodja will perform Claudio Monteverdi's short opera 'Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda', which is the story of a knight named Tancredi and a lady named Clorinda.

They are lovers but also knights. So when they meet unexpectedly in battle, they do not recognise each other as they are wearing their armour.

Of course, they do as knights do and battle... to someone's death!

Find out what happens through the wonders of shadow puppetry by Koori artist Vicki Warn, with live musical performance by Curate's ensemble, Runs with Wolfgang.

Once the initial performance finishes, audience members are invited to explore their creativity and make their own shadow puppet as a WOW Festival memento.

This show is perfect for all ages, so come on out and join the fun!


Djinda Boodja is located on the shared Clontarf Campus. Access to it is via 295 Manning Road, Waterford, through the main campus gates.
