Wexford Festival Opera has been nominated in two major categories for the highly prestigious International Opera Awards: Best Festival, alongside other leading international opera festivals including Aix-en-Provence, Glyndebourne, and Santa Fe; and Best Rediscovered Work for Wexford's production last year of Mascagni's Guglielmo Ratcliff. In addition, two artists from last year's Festival were also nominated. South Africa soprano Nozuko Teto, who sang in the Delius opera, Koanga, was nominated in the Best Young Female Singer category, and Fabio Ceresa, who directed Guglielmo Ratcliff, was nominated in the Best Young Director category. Fabio Ceresa will return to Wexford this autumn to direct Maria de Rudenz by Donizetti. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in Londo on Sunday, May 15,
