  • Dr Tom Walsh Lecture

    Starts: 11:00

      Jerome Hynes Theatre

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning opera Silent Night powerfully recalls the near-mythic Christmas Eve battlefield truce during the Great War. We are delighted that Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell, the composer and librettist of Silent Night, will present this year’s lecture, held in memory of Wexford’s Dr Tom Walsh.

  • La Cenerentola

    Starts: 15:30

      Whites Hotel

    Cinderella, the English form of La Cenerentola, was composed in 1817, a year after The Barber of Seville, and contains some of Rossini’s most dazzling vocal writing. The complete title, Cinderella, or Goodness Triumphant, suggests there is more to the story than a handsome prince seeking a beautiful bride. 

  • Pre-Opera Talk

    Starts: 19:00

      O'Reilly Theatre

    Each evening there will be a talk of approximately 30 minutes' duration about the opera to be performed, giving an opportunity to explore the work more closely. Talks will be given by a range of specialists including academics, composers, directors and musicians.

  • Salomé

    Starts: 20:00

      O'Reilly Theatre

    A rarely performed operatic version of Oscar Wilde’s perceptive play about Hérod’s dysfunctional family and the unhappy relationships between Hérod, his second wife Hérodias and his stepdaughter Salomé.
