Blackwater Valley Opera Festival
The Blackwater Valley Opera Festival (BVOF), Ireland's unmissable summer opera festival, is returning on a high note for seven magical days from 31st of May to the 6th of June 2022.
Highlights include the headline opera Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice with the award-winning Irish Baroque Orchestra and modern CoisCéim Dance Theatre, a new 'Discover Singing' programme, concerts in the breath-taking Dromore Yard, a James Joyce spoken recital, dance and orchestral collaborations, free open air lunchtime performances in towns across Waterford and Cork, and unique dining experiences!
The festival, which attracts more than 3,000 people to Waterford and the Blackwater Valley region each year, has embarked on an even bigger celebration of opera, classical music, and the arts than ever before.
The Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is a living, breathing opera and classical music experience – made possible with the support grants from The Arts Council, Waterford City & County Council, Waterford Leader, and Faílte Ireland. The festival's lead sponsors are Kildare Village, Marsh, AIB and the John Pollard Foundation.
