NORA BARNACLE, the Galwegian who was James Joyce’s wife, muse, best friend, and source of strength will be celebrated in a new work by Tom Cullivan.
Nora At Nuns Island by the celebrated Galway composer and pianist Tom Cullivan will be premiered in the Nuns Island Theatre this Sunday at 3pm.
The show weaves 13 concert songs, operatic arias, and ballads of the kind Nora loved to sing, into a narrative thread made up of the sage and perceptive observations for which she is famous, gleaned from James Joyce’s writings.
The show will feature soprano and actress Sandra Schalks, accompanied by Tom Cullivan.
Tickets are €12.50/10 and are available from the Galway Arts Centre (091 - 565886 ).
