The Wexford Festival Opera is a musical opera festival. The festival started in 1951 under Tom Walsh and a gathering of opera lovers who immediately created extensive enthusiasm by programming bizarre and rare works, an ordinary festival organizing three musical dramas. This idea has been kept up finished the organization's history under the heading of seven diverse imaginative chiefs.
From the earliest starting point, the organization grasped new and up and coming youthful vocalists, a large number of whom were Irish, yet it likewise included new worldwide names who showed up there. By the 1960s Czech and Russian musical shows entered the repertory, while the 1970s saw an enthusiasm for the musical shows of Jules Massenet under executive Thomson Smillie, trailed by an accentuation on Italian musical dramas from the finish of that decade.
Be that as it may, in with the general mish-mash there seemed more present day musical shows by Benjamin Britten and Carlisle Floyd while Elaine Padmore's 12-year residency brought about more global artists showing up and the beginnings of business accounts and radio communicates. The current masterful executive since 2005, David Agler, administered the making of another opera house with improved offices on the site of the first theater.
