A Musical Celebration of Joyce’s Ulysses

The works of James Joyce, who was an accomplished musician himself, are musical landscapes, laden with references to songs and operatic works of the day. The National Concert Hall is proud to present its Bloomsday concert on Friday, June 14th at 1pm in the John Field Room.

Accompanied by the outstanding pianist, David Wray, Dublin-Born soprano Sandra Oman, in the role of Molly Bloom, will perform such vocal delights as “Love’s Old Sweet Song,” “The Last Rose of Summer,” “I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls,” “The Holy City,” “Sweet Rosie O’Grady,” “Oft in the Stilly Night,” “Silent, O Moyle,” “Habanera (Carmen),” and “The Lass of Aughrim.” Acclaimed actress and television icon Mary McEvoy (Biddy, Glenroe) plays the role of Nora Barnacle, Joyce’s wife, reading extracts from Ulysses and giving the audience a flavour of Dublin in 1904. Molly and Nora, the great loves of Joyce’s life (fictitious and real), converse and reminisce. A concert for lovers of Bloomsday, Joyce or simply beautiful songs of yesteryear!

The concert is presented by Sheldon Nulty Music.

Tickets are €22 general, €20 concession.
