Venue: Wexford Opera House

One of the most loved opera festivals in the world, specialising in the presentation of rarely performed Opera and superb concerts and recitals. The full programme of events (pdf) is on the www.discoverireland.ie/wexford page.

This year’s festival will run for 16 days,, from Friday October 21st to Saturday November 5th, 2011.

3 Main Stage Operas: La cour de Célimene (1855) by Ambroise Thomas, a comic opera in 2 Acts. Sung in French.A hurt and humiliated woman takes her revenge on men, breaking their hearts while protecting her own. The only way to a happy marriage, she says, is to forego love.

Maria (1903) by Roman Statkowski, a tragic opera in 3 Acts.
Sung in Polish. An old tale with contemporary relevance: a father who wants power and wealth rather than a happy marriage for his son tries to change the course of events through murder. True love that reaches beyond death and outwits evil.

Gianni di Parigi (1839) by Gaetano Donizetti, a melodrama in 2 Acts.
Sung in Italian. It’s a good idea to know the woman you’re going to marry – and it’s a clever woman who sees what the man’s getting up to!

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