The BVOF Concert Series is set at the architecturally quirky Dromore Yard, where Irish mezzo-soprano Paula Murrihy will debut at BVOF with the Irish Baroque Orchestra & Peter Whelan for – Where Shall I Fly? A Handel Celebration; Nadège Rochat and Judith Jáuregui will perform a programme for cello and piano A Poet’s Garden; and acclaimed English tenor, Ian Bostridge will present Shakespeare Songs. Pre-book formal dining The Macbeth Menu – at Lismore Castle by Eunice Power, and a choice of gourmet table picnics at Dromore Yard by Eamo & Ró.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to Ireland’s Summer Opera Festival.
