We are delighted to announce that priority booking for Friends of Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is now open. The Festival will take place from September 1-5, featuring Puccini’s wonderful opera Gianni Schicchi and an exciting concert and recital programme at our outdoor venue in the extraordinary setting of Lismore Castle. At the heart of our planning is the safety and comfort of our artists and audiences and we are always working within the latest national public health guidelines.

Our Festival Brochure is brimming with everything you need to know, including details about our opera, a day-by-day guide to the schedule of concerts and recitals, and information on ticket booking, hospitality, and pricing. The programme will feature a new series of free outdoor Lunchtime Recitals in Lismore, Dungarvan and Youghal. 

We want to reassure you that no matter what restrictive measures there are in place in September, our team will be working to keep you safe so that you can enjoy the performances and a magical musical break in the Blackwater Valley.
