The channel’s flagship bilingual arts series returns for its 7th season with presenter Tristan Rosenstock and his team chronicling cultural life in Ireland, getting up close and personal with our leading artists in all corners of the country.
The series regularly features established and emerging talent. Some of Ireland’s best known will be giving in-depth interviews. These include Chieftain’s founder and leader Paddy Moloney, writer Emma Donoghue, composer Bill Whelan, poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Hozier, Ireland Chair of Irish Poetry Paula Meehan, artist Mick O’Dea as well as international artists such as stage and TV actor John Mahoney. From Lego sculptures to circus skills, Imeall will showcase every aspect of Ireland’s creative magic.
In this week's edition of Imeall we take a look at Swan Lake, one of the most famous ballets in the world being performed by Ireland's National Ballet Company, Ballet Ireland. We take a trip down memory lane to re-visit Christopher Furlong who we met in Imeall series 3 when he was on the verge of leaving his hometown of Rhode, Co.Offaly to begin his dance training. A few years later we meet him again in his first professional dancing role with Ballet Ireland.
