A Western Skyline Special - this time focused on Live Events being shown at the Eye Cinema, Galway over the next six months. Today's show highlights music and arias from operas by Bellini, Mozart, Puccini, & Donizetti.
There's news of an animated film 'Loving Vincent' - dedicated to the life and work of Van Gogh, and - also at the Eye Cinema - an encore performance by Benedict Cumberbatch as 'Hamlet' on 5 October. Instead of the poem this week, listen to Richard E Grant's rendition of 'What a piece of work is a man' (Hamlet), in the closing scene of 'Withnail & I'. (Filmed in a downpour at the Zoo).
We have details of a new dance/cello collaboration between Jean butler & Neil Martin. Finally, there's an instrumental version of a well -loved modern song - from Galway-based ConTempo Quartet.
If you'd like to hear another classical Western Skyline - let me know. Just email [email protected] and put The Western Skyline in the subject line. As always - Thanks for listening!
