The Theatre Royal during the Wexford Opera Festival

Below is a complete list of the operas performed by Wexford Festival Opera since its inception in 1951. Only complete operas presented on stage with orchestra are listed; over the years, the Festival has also presented programmes of scenes from operas and one-act operas with piano accompanement.

Nearly all the performances listed took place at the Theatre Royal, Wexford or (from 2008) at the new Wexford Opera House. After the demolition of the Theatre Royal and during the building of the Opera House, the 2006 season operas were performed at the Dún Mhuire Theatre in Wexford, and the 2007 operas at Johnstown Castle, a few kilometres outside the town.

To date, the Festival has been led by the following seven Artistic Directors:

  • 1951–66: Tom Walsh
  • 1967–73: Brian Dickie
  • 1974–78: Thomson Smillie
  • 1979–81: Adrian Slack
  • 1982–94: Elaine Padmore
  • 1995–2004: Luigi Ferrari
  • 2005–: David Agler
