Blackwater Valley Opera Festival returns from 29 May – 5 June 2023. With more than 4,500 visitors expected again in 2023, we invite you to join us and experience many of our classical music and opera performances. The feature of this year’s festival will be four evening performances of the opera Macbeth, by Giuseppe Verdi, in the grounds of Lismore Castle, Waterford – with 21 events at 12 venues over eight days.
The BVOF Concert Series is set at the architecturally quirky Dromore Yard, where Irish 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 Jáuregi will perform a programme for cello and piano A Poet’s Garden; and acclaimed English tenor, Ian Bostridge will present Shakespeare Songs. We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to Ireland’s Summer Opera Festival.
