Wexford Opera House is Ireland’s first custom-built, multi-purpose opera house. The stunning landmark building is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Harbour town of Wexford and offers two diverse performance spaces, The John and Aileen O’Reilly Theatre and the Jerome Hynes Theatre. Wexford Opera House aims to be a progressive cultural centre of excellence in opera, musicals and music-theatre, whilst embracing other ways in which the human voice communicates through music and words. This ambition forms part of a wider programme that sees Wexford Opera House open year-round, offering productions of varying scales and art-forms featuring individuals and performing groups of local, national and international origin.
