Wexford Festival Opera expands Wexford Factory to include new repetiteur programme

Wexford Factory
Wexford Festival Opera is expanding its Wexford Factory programme to include repetiteurs. Wexford Factory is the festival's professional academy for young Irish / Ireland-based singers and 15 young singers are taking part in the 2022/23 term. This year, they are being joined by three pianists Aoife Moran, Eléna Maria Esposito and Rebecca Warren, who will take part in the programme over the course of 2 weeks in September, prior to rehearsals for the 71st Wexford Festival Opera in October, at which they will have opportunities to perform.

See my recent interview with the festival's artistic director, Rosetta Cucchi, in which she introduces the 2022 festival and talks about Wexford Factory and its achievements.

Eléna Maria Esposito is an Irish pianist based in Dublin. She has recently completed her degree in piano performance at the TU Dublin Conservatoire, mentored by Siobhán Kilkelly. Aoife Moran is an Irish pianist currently studying on the Repetiteur course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she previously obtained a Master’s degree in piano accompaniment. Rebecca Warren is a pianist and violinist from Wexford currently studying on the repetiteur Master’s programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
