From 24 Oct to 05 Nov, something special awaits you as Wexford Town fills with opera and music. 70 events, 13 days in 1 Festival, beloved by audiences at home and abroad. Join in to experience Ireland's International Wexford Festival Opera.

Brimming with warmth, Wexford Festival Opera is where friendships are forged and memories are treasured.

Come and immerse yourself in the ‘Wexford Experience’.

Hosted in the National Opera House and selected venues, the programme for the 72nd Festival centres around the theme of Women and War, with each chosen work highlighting a different aspect of the struggles women face; in conflict, fighting prejudice and in making their voices heard.

The festival also includes three pocket operas, the highly enjoyable Lunchtime Recitals, the Gala Concert, a Choral Concert with New Dublin Voices, together with daily Pop Up events and so much more.
