Since the first ‘Festival of Music and the Arts’ took place in October 1951, Wexford Festival Opera has grown into one of the world’s leading opera festivals. In 2017 Wexford Festival Opera won Best Opera Festival in the World at the 2017 International Opera Awards.
Bizet was just 18 when he composed Le Docteur Miracle, this little gem has flavours Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia and Donizetti’s L’elisir d’Amore. Indeed, at every turn, Le Docteur Miracle shows how remarkably well the young composer had already mastered comic style.
