Seventy members of Wexford Festival Singers and Ceol Loch Garman will form the chorus for the show which will include many popular classical numbers

This is the first time the promoters Jim Molloy are coming to Wexford Opera, and they have previously produced similar shows in the National Concert Hall in Dublin and the famed Carnegie Hall in New York.

'There will be lots of rousing numbers, where everybody claps along and joins in the fun,' said Deirdre. 'It promises to be a wonderful night of familiar Viennese music capturing the style of "A Night at the Proms," in the wonderful surroundings of Wexford Opera House.'

The show takes place in the O'Reilly Theatre at Wexford Opera House on Friday, April 9 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the box office, on www.wexfordoperahouse.ie, by phone on (053) 9122144, and also from Halford's Hair Studio in Gorey.
