Announcing the 2020 Blackwater Valley Opera Festival, taking place from 26 May to 1 June 2020. We invite you to look through our interactive brochure featuring extensive information on our entire festival programme.

We are presenting a double bill for the first time in 2020: staging both Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi; and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci in the enchanting surrounds of Lismore Castle. Our hugely successful evening concert series at Dromore Yard returns for another year, featuring two world class classical music concerts. Festival Creative Director Dieter Kaegi has curated a truly exceptional and extensive programme of recitals for this year’s festival including performances from the Bolshoi Theatre Young Artists’, Amy Gillen & Tara Viscardi Recital and BVOF Opera Chorus Recital.
