We share her mind numbing commitment and burning desire to win the Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, in what way? From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. THE HUMOURS OF BANDON is a coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life. Developed as part of Show in a Bag an artist development initiative of Tiger Dublin Fringe, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.

  • Title: Be My Love
  • Venue: Visual
  • Start Date/Time: 12/02/2017, 15:30
  • Details: The great conductor, Arturo Toscanini described him as “the greatest tenor of the twentieth century”. In just five years, Mario Lanza went from being a 16-year-old Philadelphian truck driver to being the most “in demand” singer in the world. He had a magnificent operatic voice but he appeared on the opera stage only twice. Instead, he was seduced by Hollywood and made eight record-breaking films. Movies like “That Midnight Kiss”, “The Great Caruso”, “The Toast of New Orleans” and “The Student Prince” brought his fame and his voice all around the world. Jose Carreras admitted that Lanza had been his inspiration and Placido Domingo said, “I owe my career in opera to a kid from Philadelphia!”. But the strain of putting on weight to sing and then dieting to shoot the films took its inevitable toll on his health and Mario Lanza died in Italy at the tragically early age of 38. Apart from his films he left behind a wonderful catalogue of recordings and 12 Gold Discs, including; “Be my love”, “The Loveliest Night of the Year”, “Drink! Drink! Drink!”, “Because You’re Mine”, and “I’ll walk with God”. Following his nation-wide success with “I’LL WALK BESIDE YOU” – The Story of Count John McCormack and “BLAZE AWAY” – The Incredible Life of Josef Locke, famed Irish tenor Frank Ryan is joined by soprano Sarah O’Mahony and pianist Thomas Doyle to relive the enchanting but poignant story of the life of Mario Lanza. Narration is by RTE’s Kevin Hough [“The Lyrics Board”] and the show is written and directed by Cathal MacCabe. Tickets: €20/18conc
