Novelist Colm Tóibín has had a long association with Wexford Festival Opera and has written extensively over the years about his first opera, and how captivated he was by the experience.

Therefore, it was with great excitement that the Festival announced earlier this year that it would premiere a new opera by Colm, based on his 2004 Man Booker Prize short-listed novel ‘The Master’, with music by the Italian composer Alberto Caruso.
