Opera goers encouraged to wear a touch of green to symbolise how even small changes can help protect the environment!
The Green Carpet will be laid out for patrons attending Wexford Festival Opera on Wednesday, 30 October as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) comes together once again with Wexford Festival Opera to go ‘Green’ on the night to highlight how even small individual changes can have a big positive impact on the environment. This initiative which was introduced four years ago, has been met with an overwhelming response from the audience, staff and volunteers and the momentum has continued to grow.
The initiative invites opera-goers on the night to make a small, symbolic change to their attire, signifying a commitment to making ‘small changes’ in their lives to help the environment. People are encouraged to make a small change to their opera-wear that evening, such as a green bow-tie, a green piece of jewellery, a green pocket square, green shoes, green nail varnish; the possibilities are endless! Patrons will also enter that night via a green carpet at the front entrance of the National Opera House, which will be bathed in green light. The message is that small changes can make a great difference.
