American Friends of Wexford Opera

Wexford Festival Opera presented its inaugural American Friends of Wexford Opera New York Dinner Gala in September of 2013, firmly establishing Wexford’s presence in the United States and reinforcing its significance as Ireland’s leading international cultural event. The proceeds from the Gala, at which the special guest was soprano Angela Meade, one of Wexford’s leading alumnae, went directly towards the costs of presenting one of the 2013 main stage productions. The 2014 American Friends of Wexford Opera New York Dinner Gala will take place on 10 September in The Pierre Hotel. All proceeds from this glittering event will be channelled directly towards the costs of producing one of the highlights of this year’s programme, the European premiere production of Silent Night, first presented by Minnesota Opera in 2011. If you wish to attend the Gala or to become involved in Wexford’s expanding development activities in the United States, please contact the Chief Executive, David McLoughlin.
