Bloomsday - A Celebration in Song and Prose of James Joyce's Ulysses

  • National Concert Hall Earlsfort Terrace Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

Bloomsday is a joyous celebration of arguably the greatest novel in the English language. An accomplished musician himself, the works of Joyce are musical landscapes, laden with references to songs and operatic works of the day. Accompanied by the outstanding Kent-born pianist, David Wray, Dublin-born soprano Sandra Oman will perform such vocal delights as ‘Love's Old Sweet Song’, ‘I Dreamt I Dwellt in Marble Halls’, ‘Silent, O Moyle’, ‘The Lass of Aughrim’ and many more. Star of stage and screen Michael Grennell (Game of Thrones, The Tudors, Ballykissangel) will preside as James Joyce himself, reading extracts from Ulysses and giving the audience a flavour of Dublin in 1904. This is a concert for lovers of Bloomsday, Joyce or simply beautiful songs of yesteryear!
