Do Not Sleep Dublin at District 8


If all you are planning to do this Saturday is go to a party with good electronic music and dance your socks off, what about heading down to District 8 and enjoying the Do Not Sleep party. The Ibiza House & Techno brand Do Not Sleep has a firm philosophy of no frills and no nonsense when it comes to clubbing. They are well known for their unique energy and a crowd who are all about the music and the party.

Since its launch in 2014 Do Not Sleep has gone from strength to strength. What started out as a party to promote high quality dance music has expanded to include a reputable label, radio show, and global touring schedule. They all share the same ‘let the music do the talking’ ethos fostered by Do Not Sleep resident, Darius Syrossian.

It has been four years since The Moscow State Opera brought their production of CARMEN to Dublin and the response was so overwhelming that a return was inevitable.

The sets have been designed in association with The Picasso Foundation, which together with the costumes and Bizet’s wonderful score, guarantees an authentic Spanish feel to the whole performance.

Celine Byrne, Ireland’s own international soprano will be starring in the role of Michaela every evening, and the Orchestra of The Moscow State Opera will accompany the soloists, a magnificent chorus, and the children’s choir provided by The Junior Musicals Theatre School of Bray.
