BLOOMSDAY 2017 will be marked in Galway with the Nora at Nuns Island concert, featuring songs, operatic arias, and ballads, and celebrating the life of James Joyce's Galway wife, Nora Barnacle.
Soprano and actress Sandra Schalks will portray Nora Barnacle. She will be accompanied by pianist/composer Tom Cullivan, creator of the show. The show weaves 16 concert songs, operatic arias, and ballads, of the kind Nora loved to sing, into a narrative thread containing the perceptive observations for which she was known, gleaned from Joyces’ writings of which they comprise such an important part.
Nora at Nuns Island takes place in the Nuns Island Theatre on Friday June 16 at 8pm. Tickets are €12.50/10 via the Galway Arts Centre (091 - 565886, www.galwayartscentre.ie )
