The Fringe Festival

Wexford OperaThe Fringe Events Programme in Wexford is a rich musical feast of sacred music and choral concerts, jazz events and traditional and modern music sessions which take place throughout the whole day.

The core of the fringe events are the Scenes from the Opera which offer exciting extracts from operas usually lasting about an hour and typically held at midday. Freed from the rigours of a full operatic production the scenes are exuberant joyful productions full of life and energy. In a smaller setting than The Opera House they create an intimacy and immediacy between the audience and the cast.

The atmosphere of Wexford and chance meetings in the narrow streets offer the opportunity to congratulate the singers and share the joy of the performance just seen.

For our guests who would like to visit Wexford Festival during their October holiday we are glad to help with any additional information about what is happening in the town, the best place to watch the fireworks, give a tip for the horse races, suggest spooky and ghoulish events during the Halloween Holiday for the family and provide a baby sitter if parents would like to savour the night time atmosphere of the town on their own.
