Blackwater Valley Opera Festival

Beyond the current COVID-19 emergency, our sense of community at Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is stronger than ever, and we are pleased to announce that a number of activities will be rescheduled to a date later this year. 

We are looking forward to presenting an Autumn programme of recitals and concerts in some of our stunning Festival venues on the weekend of 10th/11th October 2020. This programme will provide vital employment opportunities for a number of Irish artists and will help to generate important economic and cultural activity in the region. A full schedule of event details will be announced in due course.

BVOF will also continue its 2020 Schools Education programme when schools re-open. On an ongoing basis the Festival works with 35 secondary and primary schools across the region. BVOF have committed to the development of a pilot ‘Singing Schools’ project with Music Generation Waterford and we will deliver music education workshops in the following schools later in the year:

Aglish NS, Whitechurch NS, Bunscoil Bóthar na Naomh Lismore, Ardmore NS, Ballyduff Upper, St. John’s Special School Dungarvan, Knockanore NS, St. Mary’s Primary School Dungarvan.

BVOF is also connecting with many of our artists who are isolating at home in America, Italy, France, UK, Switzerland and across Ireland, working with them to share performances and short videos with our followers. Please follow #bvoftogetherahomeand our social media channels for updates:

As always, BVOF gratefully acknowledges ongoing support from Marsh, Waterford Leader, John Pollard Foundation, Arts Council, Waterford City & County Council, Fáilte Ireland, Kinsale Capital, AIB and all our Festival sponsors.
