Wexford Festival Opera welcomes hundreds of music lovers through its doors to experience unique and mesmerising performances. Since its inception in 1951, the Festival has continually attracted audiences from all over the world who wish to sample lesser-known and unjustly neglected works. Indeed, Wexford Festival Opera has had a long history of reaching out to all corners of the globe. An estimated 5 million people around the world tuned in on Saturday, 1 November 2014 for the sold-out performance of the Italian comic opera, Don Bucefalo by Antonio Cagnoni.
