Paul Herriott presents tonight’s opera live from the National Opera House in Wexford at the 2019 Wexford Festival Opera. This fairytale-like story takes place in the valley of Tempe in Greece. The opera tells of the obstacles to the blissful union of Dorilla (a princess) sung by Manuela Custer and Elmiro (a shepherd) sung by Josè Maria Lo Monaco, whose rival Nomio sung by Veronique Valdés turns out to be the disguised god Apollo. The Wexford Festival Opera Orchestra and Chorus is conducted by Andrew Marchiol
