Cork Culture Night – Voce Di Donna Free Performance
September 19 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
The Palace Theatre will be playing host to a very special performance this year as part of Cork Culture Week which is free for everyone to attend.
VOCE DI DONNA
“YOU’D BE SURPRISED!”
Voce di Donna (Voice of a Woman), is delighted to announce its third production ‘You’d Be Surprised!’ which opens on Culture Night, the 19th of September at the Palace Theatre, Fermoy at 8pm… Admission free!
A new departure from their operatic origins, this show features gems from some of musical theatre’s greatest, including: Gershwin, Sondheim, Berlin, Lloyd Webber and many of our modern songwriters. The timeless lyrics of these songs echo something of our own story, our own experience, our frustrations and longings – songs to make us laugh or cry, or simply remind us of the sheer joy of living.
Fiona O’Reilly (Soprano), Christina O’Flynn (Mezzo Soprano) & Bethan Lee (Piano), make up a unique trio, in this show designed and directed by Mary Curtin and supported by the Cork County Council Arts Office. The group originally came together because of their shared passion for opera and the desire to bring it to a wider audience than it currently enjoys. Their first production ‘Three Ladies And A Suitcase’ which was directed by Belinda Wild, in 2012, and its second ‘Disarming Divas And Spicy Roles’ (directed by Mary Curtin) in 2013, have toured with remarkable appreciation and success.
In their new show, you can meet the Divas and the Darlings, the Bad and the Sad, the Funny girls and the Sunny girls of the magical musical stage and enjoy hearing songs you know and some that you’ve never heard before…well… ‘You’d Be Surprised!’
