Bloomsday - A Musical Celebration of Joyce's Ulysses

Sandra Oman, soprano
Mary McEvoy, actress
Simon Morgan, baritone
David Wray, piano

Bloomsday is a joyous celebration of arguably the greatest novel in the English language, Ulysses by James Joyce. 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 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); 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!
