Wexford Festival Opera began in the unlikeliest of places and times: a rural town (pop.12,000) 1950s Ireland. To set itself apart, the festival looked to introduce audiences to neglected or forgotten operas and drawn by curiosity, international critics soon began to recount the magic they found here. As they work for long days and nights, for weeks on end, here we discover the fundamental truth of sorcery: magic doesn’t just happen. It is made.
