As Wexford Festival Opera is one of the leading opera festivals in the world. Priding itself on breathing new life into unjustly neglected operas, it has succeeded in introducing both artists and audiences to forgotten masterpieces. With high quality productions which annually delight both critics and audiences alike, it's not to be missed. The 66th Wexford Festival Opera will run for 18 days, and feature such classic performances as Medea by Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842), Margherita, by Jacopo Foroni (1825-1858), and Risurrezione, by Franco Alfano (1875-1954). If you're a die-hard fan of one of the most challenging music genres to master, or simply culturally curious, join the thousands of revellers from far and wide this autumn in Wexford. Tickets €25 - €145
