A highlight from recent Festivals has been the Shakespeare’s performances and this year the Rough Magic prodcution of the ever popular Midusmmer Nights' Dream in the Castle Yard should be exceptional. Monteverdi 's opera The Return of Ulysses will be performed by one of the world's leading baroque orchestras and the series Brahms in the Afternoon in St John's Priory promise to be highlights of a programme with something to appeal to everyone. The Kilkenny Arts Festival is a popular event and it makes an already special location even more fun to visit this August.
