The National Opera House has signed a €175,000 sponsorship deal that will see investment pumped into the theatre's digital transformation.

IT systems at the world-renowned venue will be overhauled during the five-year partnership with Datapac, a supporter since the opera doors opened 10 years ago.

National Opera House CEO David McLoughlin said that the funding will help modernise the opera's processes and systems for users and staff alike, allowing an increased focus on performances for visitors.

"Our primary aim is to encourage more people to visit and enjoy the National Opera House – our collaborative partnerships with local businesses are central to achieving this aim," he said.

It is expected that the partnership with Datapac will help the venue to open the house to more visitors by promoting the range of entertainment available at the Wexford-based theatre.

Ireland's first and only custom-built opera house, the National Opera House is home to the international award-winning Wexford Festival Opera, which has run for over 67 years.

Datapac general manager Karen O’Connor said that "having a world-class amenity, making quality arts and entertainment available in the South East, is essential to regional quality of life".
