Richard Strauss

Wexford audiences will have two unique opportunities to experience the world famous China National Opera House from the comfort of the Jerome Hynes Theatre in the National Opera House.

Fly with us to National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing for this special event entirely dedicated to Richard Strauss.

Watching a performance on the big screen has the advantage of experiencing the sopranos and orchestra close up from the comfort of a ring side seat in the intimate setting of the Jerome Hynes Theatre.
