The Festival is an eclectic mix of musical genres with classical music and opera at its core and is fast becoming a much anticipated annual event on the European Music Festivals calendar attracting music lovers and visitors to the region. A festival for lovers of music and the good life it incorporates, beautiful locations, venues, landscape, architecture, gardens, music, food and wine...
The Lismore Festival was founded by two former Opera Ireland staff, Jennifer O'Connell (Former Marketing Director, Opera Ireland) and Dieter Kaegi (Former Artistic Director, Opera Ireland). Jennifer and Dieter invited friends and colleagues to join them in establishing a board to help build a world class festival in the Munster Region to bring the highest possible standards and quality of opera and classical music to an audience outside of the Capital city, to create beautiful music in beautiful surroundings.
