Two young artists were announced for Wexford Festival Opera’s newly developed Repetiteur Programme which will take place as part of Wexford Factory in September, the Festival’s professional academy for young Irish or Irish- based singers. In its inaugural year, this new programme will introduce two young pianists who will join the 16 singers previously announced to take part in the 2022/23 term.
The 2022/23 participants of this new initiative are pianists Eléna Maria Esposito and Rebecca Warren. They will take part in the programme over the course of 2 weeks in September, prior to rehearsals for the 71st Wexford Festival Opera in October, at which they will have opportunities to perform.
The Community Foundation for Ireland’s support will go directly towards the professional development and support of these three artists. This new programme was developed by the Festival to provide vital support for young pianists in Ireland who would not otherwise be able to access this level of training and masterclass teachings by world-class professionals.
