Wexford Festival Opera 2012: William Vincent Wallace and Mozart

Wexford Festival
The Magic Flute
William Vincent Wallace bicentenary recital

Here's a review of William Vincent Wallace songs, performed by pianist Una Hunt and mezzo-soprano Rachel Kelly; and a performance of Mozart's Magic Flute.

William Vincent Wallace was born in Wexford - hence the connection with the Festival.  Singers may appreciate an understanding of his context, since his songs do occasionally feature in singers' recital repertoire.  Click here.

Wallace was actually born in Waterford which is a town about 40km further along the South East Coast, He left Waterford months later but Waterford are very proud of their association with him and songs from his opera are frequently performed there. Una Hunt, the pianist on this occasion has made a special study of Wallace and his work for his bicentenary year.
