Blackwater Valley Opera Festival

Our sense of community at Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is stronger than ever and this month, with the support of Waterford City and County Council and Failte Ireland, we are pleased to announce the creation of two very special projects allowing us to celebrate the wonderful talents of our artists and to provide our audiences with some beautiful performances to enjoy over the winter months. These projects mark the beginning of a new musical chapter for BVOF and we cannot wait to share this with our BVOF audience. 

 

Later this month we will release a cinematic interpretation of the Songs and Airs of Irish composer John Larchet, titled John F. Larchet Remembered.  This beautiful production was filmed at our iconic Festival venue Dromore Yard with Musical Director Niall Kinsella and Producer Conleth Stanley, featuring performances by Gavan Ring, Raphaela Mangan, Mia Cooper.  

 

Alongside our John F. Larchet programme we have also produced a series of online videos featuring arias from BVOF productions titled ‘Access All Arias’, featuring Amy Ni Fhearraigh, Gavan Ring, Raphaela Mangan, Mia Cooper and Niall Kinsella. Please subscribe to our newsletter and follow our social media channels for release dates and updates.
