Searching for Rosemary Kennedy - The Irish National Opera at the Lime Tree Theatre is proud to present this work created by Brian Irvine and Netia Jones.

An explosive and thought-provoking opera at the Lime Tree of experimental music theatre. It traces events in the life of Rosemary, eldest daughter of Joe and Rose Kennedy, sister of JFK, using heavily redacted materials from the archives, only recently pieced together by biographers and academics.

The opera explores events in Rosemary’s difficult life leading up to her disastrous lobotomy at the age of 23 by the “kings of lobotomy,” Walter Freeman and James Watts. Rosemary’s tragic life constitutes a portrait of America in the 1940s and 1950s. It is a picture that is as relevant today as it was then.
