JOYCE AND MUSIC

A Distinct Identity

Music.jpg

Hear the much-mythologised story of how Joyce might have been the next John McCormack had he not fluffed a sight-reading test. This missed opportunity was literature's gain, and he lost no opportunities to parade his love of music - of all kinds - in his fiction. Bawdy ballads, the sacred and the sacrilegious, and opera to music hall. He was not averse to musical burlesque either.


After the show, The Tatties and other performers will join us for dinner at the Hawthorn Hotel. You're welcome to join in the fun.

A comedy trio (and maestro) from Brisbane who sing for the fun and the joy of it: veterans of Melbourne and Dublin Bloomsdays, lots of charity gigs, footy openings, weddings and funerals and grand finals.

THE BRIGHT PARTICULAR STARS: 
MERRYN HUGHES AND TORSTEN STROKIRCH

In another future for Molly, we see her drawn by the power of music both to Bloom (Chris Broadstock) and to Blazes Boylan.

YOUR HOST

Tref Gare

The multi-talented Tref Gare (Melbourne Shakespeare Company) is not just in charge of theatricals, but also our Host. As such he channels a famous Italian composer/teacher/maestro, Luigi Denza, and also your grandiloquent, indeed logorrheic, Music Hall Host.
