Wexford Factory Final Concert

To close the IIII° edition of the Wexford Factory in September, participants will present a special concert in front of an O’Reilly Theatre audience.

The Factory Concert is a unique showcase featuring the singers and repetiteurs who participate in the Festival’s Wexford Factory programme.  

The Wexford Factory participants are now in their second year. Having developed and refined their skills through masterclasses and performance opportunities, the artists, both singers and pianist repetiteurs, unite in this concert showcase.

The IIII° edition of the Wexford Factory offers professional and financial support to young singers in the early stages of their careers. In 2022, we also saw the establishment of an initiative offering a formative experience to young pianists/repetiteurs who are taking the big step into a professional career.  

The Wexford Factory, aims to train young singers and repetiteurs through intensive masterclasses held by major internationally recognised artists, coaches and opera professionals, which will further confirm Wexford Festival Opera as a centre of cultural and educational importance in the opera world.   

Wexford Festival Opera has a long history of being a springboard for many young singers at the beginning of their careers, helping them move onto the international stage. The Wexford Factory, which is open to young Irish or Irish-based singers, builds on this tradition. 

The Wexford Factory  IIII° edition will once again be an international collaboration with TUD (Technological University Dublin), RIAM (Royal Irish Academy of Music), and the Rossini Opera Festival “Alberto Zedda” Academy, Pesaro.
