2023 Wexford Festival Opera Women & War

24 October - 5 November 2023

Women & War is the theme for Festival 2023, the fruition of a long-held concept of Artistic Director Rosetta Cucchi, who is intrigued to delve into the implications of this theme in opera. Each of the chosen operas highlights a different aspect of the struggles faced by women: conflict, prejudice and in making their voices heard. Three very different female characters, each fighting for something.  Thirteen days and nights of opera, concerts, recitals, talks, pop-up community events and film performed by Irish and international singers. Featuring three rarely staged mainstage operas:

Zoraida di Granata by Gaetano Donizetti
L’Aube rouge by Camille Erlanger
La ciociara by Marco Tutino
