Cappello 19 Image Name: Cappello 19

Join Liz Nolan as she visits the chronicles of passionate and spectacular art.

Each week an opera, a story, a glimpse into the lives of the characters, both real and imaginary, who have shaped the form as we know it today.

Two weeks and three operas performed in repertory, tonight Liz gives the inside track on the three operas in this year’s Wexford Festival Opera: Il Cappello di paglia di Firenze (The Florentine Straw Hat) by Nino Rota, a double bill of Thérèse and La Navarraise by Jules Massenet, and Cristina, regina di Svezia by Jacopo Foroni.
