Wexford Opera Festival

The opera tells the contrasted love story between Isabelle and Baron de Mergy, two young Protestants in 16th century France, a country still shocked after the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre.

“He’s decided, he’s obviously very cautious of what is going on after the massacre, but he’s in love. He’s the type of person… a bit like Clint Eastwood, you know, he’s relaxed but you don’t mess with him because he’s ready to die for what he believes,” explained Nico Darmanin, tenor.
