Ireland’s Summer Opera Festival will return in 2022 with Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice conducted by Peter Whelan and directed by David Bolger, from 31 May – 6 June in Lismore, Co. Waterford. We are excited to announce that this year’s opera production will feature artistic collaborations with the acclaimed Irish Baroque Orchestra and award-winning CoisCéim Dance Theatre. The opera Orfeo ed Euridice by Gluck, will be our headline event for evening performances at Lismore Castle, with classical music recitals and concerts, schools and free events, and dining experiences at fantastic venues throughout the Blackwater Valley. Lismore Castle has been the festival’s home since 2010, with the old Stable Yard and impressive grounds of the Castle providing a magical backdrop for our bespoke opera production each summer.
Our festival joyfully engages audiences through a creative and imaginative programme of opera and classical music in the beautiful Blackwater Valley. We showcase emerging Irish talent alongside established international artists and deliver memorable and inspirational experiences that enrich the cultural life of the region.
