Ninety per cent of festival transactions are now cashless with credit and debit cards the norm for booking.

To ensure a quality customer service, the Opera Festival engaged the services of Elavon, a global company that provides the power behind the technology to process transactions.

Elavon and Wexford Festival Opera have just announced a new partnership which will see Elavon sponsoring the lead production of Nino Rota's Il Cappello di Paglia di Firenze (The Florentine Straw Hat) this year.

Declan Lynch, the CEO of Elavon Financial Services, said the company believes strong communities are built on strong foundations.

'To build those strong foundations, we are delighted to partner with Wexford Festival Opera, an iconic cultural event in one of our key European markets,' he said.

The CEO of Wexford Festival Opera, David McLoughlin said the Festival is very pleased with the partnership.

'Elavon as a global leader in its own arena parallels Wexford's position in the opera world,' he said.

Il Cappello di Paglia di Firenze will open the 62nd Wexford Festival Opera which runs for 12 days from Wednesday, October 23.

This year's other productions are Thérèse / La Navarraise by Jules Massenet, Cristina, Regina Di Svezia by Jacopo Foroni.
