Inspired by one of the world’s greatest poets, novelists, artists, and contemporary folk musicians, Leonard Cohen’s life and work was celebrated here in unique fashion. A collaboration of music, drama and dance, Cohen’s works came to life like never before at the Cork School of Music’s James Stack Theatre.

The Future took you on a journey down the many intriguing avenues of Cohen’s heart and mind, through its often bizarre inclines to its bitter-sweet, comedic and heartfelt conclusions. Famous for songs such as ‘Suzanne’ and ‘Hallelujah’, there was something for everyone in the rich musical tapestries and masterful lyrical content of Cohen’s compositions.

The students from the Performing Arts Department of Colaiste Stiofain Naofa gave an outstanding show and brought to life the music, the tales and the musings of one of the world’s most unique thinkers and commentators, Leonard Cohen.

  1. Very nice site. I spend part of the year in Old Parish, a short distance from Youghal, and it’s good to see what’s going on in the arts there.
