The Lismore Music Festival | 25 May – 02 June 2013

Venue: Lismore & Blackwater Valley, Co. Waterford

The Lismore Music Festival is an annual unique summer music opera festival in the stunning surroundings of Lismore Castle and Gardens and along the Blackwater River. LMF is an eclectic mix of musical genres with classical music and opera at its core and is fast becoming a much anticipated annual event on the European music festivals calendar attracting music lovers and visitors to the region.

Situated in what is often referred to as the Irish Riviera, Lismore Castle, the privately owned residence of the Duke of Devonshire and his family will play host to two performances of The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart in the transformed upper stables on the grounds of the castle as well as a festival Barn Dance at Fortwilliam Estate, recitals in Salterbridge House and Cappoquin House, Mozart’s Requiem at St. Carthage’s Cathedral, masterclasses and lunchtime Arias.

The festival organisers transform the former castle stables into a beautiful setting for its productions and every effort is made to weatherproof the venue and maximise comfort for its patrons including a roof and tiered seating.

Patrons are encouraged to arrive early, enjoy a 3 course opera picnic with a glass of wine from the Power & Smullen Wine Merchants cellar in the romantic and magical setting of the Lismore Castle Gardens.
Tickets to LMF events sell out quickly and early booking is recommended!

The four star self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
