Jenny Bourke is a music graduate of Queen’s University Belfast and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. She has portrayed various operatic roles, including Lucy Lockett in ‘The Beggar’s Opera’ and Sorceress in ‘Dido and Aeneus’. Jenny has also been part of ensembles like Melisma and the Ulster Consort and has performed in notable events such as the Belfast Cathedral Christmas and St. Matthew Passion concerts. She has also been featured on acclaimed CDs by Wilby.

Northern Ireland Opera is dedicated to the transformative power of opera, using it to unite communities, provide entertainment and escapism, and tell universal stories. As the country’s national opera company, they produce full-scale works that celebrate Northern Irish artists and engage audiences both locally and internationally. They also bring high-quality opera productions to communities with limited access to classical music. Through their inclusive approach, they foster a community of singers, musicians, and creatives, supporting their growth and contributing to local development. Their programs prioritise personalised support to enable meaningful outcomes for participants.

So pack your picnic, grab your camp chairs or bring a cosy blanket and join us for a delightful Saturday Lunchtime Live in the Park performance.
