Old Ghosts, written in response to the Penelope chapter of Ulysses, is a new opera commissioned from the composer Professor Evangelia Rigaki, Discipline of Music, Trinity College Dublin, and playwright Marina Carr. It imagines James Joyce in conversation with Nora Barnacle, Homer and Penelope herself as possible inspirations for the character of Molly Bloom and the final chapter of Ulysses.
