Transforming the lives of young people, exploring the life changing potential of opera and classical music.
Young people play a central part in Wexford Festival Opera's purpose and ambitions are to illustrate that opera and theatre is for everyone. We are committed to transforming the lives of these young people by giving them access and exposure to high quality performance music and educational opportunities.
Through our partnerships with organisations such as Maynooth University, Music Generation and other Specialist Educators, we aspire to create rich and diverse ways for people of all ages to engage in entertaining, creative and educational way through workshops or learning programmes.
It's about having fun while learning ! As our work with schools, college and the community sit at the heart of our learning and engagement philosophy, we are continually creating activities, projects and events designed specifically for the community, across county Wexford and at a National level.
