Wexford Festival Trust, the company which produces the annual Wexford Festival Opera and manages Wexford Opera House, has announced the election of a new Chairman of its board of directors.
Wexford Festival Opera is searching for young singers to perform two small roles in one of the main stage operas this autumn.
Critics have hailed the co-production between Bard Summerscape Festival, NY and Wexford Festival Opera, Le Roi malgré lui (The King in Spite of Himself), which just completed its run at the Fischer Center Bard College in New York. The opéra comique by Emmanuel Chabrier had an ill-starred stage history, but its lively and melodic musical score was a success from the outset and was greatly admired by Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky.
3 male, 3 female dancers required. Aged 18+
Acrobats/gymnasts with a high level of dance ability also welcome to apply.
Wexford Festival Opera are delighted to partner with Barnardos. Barnardos have 400 brand new dress suits for sale to help raise money for this vital charity.
