Glór Theatre, Ennis, Co. Clare
My World is My Song is an exciting concert performance starring Irish soprano Regina Nathan and featuring a rich and eclectic mix of songs that enhances the deep connections between the music we love, our everyday experiences and our personal stories.
This unique new show will premiere in the Glór Theatre, Ennis on Saturday 17th October at 8:00 p.m.
In a semi-staged format, Regina will perform a thought-provoking, memory-evoking programme of songs from a variety of genres that includes classical arias and more modern hits from legendary storyteller-singer-performers including Janis Ian, Leonard Cohen and Edith Piaf.
These great songs have a timeless quality that resonate. They enable us to experience the sheer pleasure of hearing a story recounted through music, and to identify with that story in ways that allow us to make the songs our own.
“I like putting together different styles of music that tell a story or express a feeling or an experience. It is not only intensely gratifying to perform these diverse and inspirational pieces; it often introduces people to music they might previously be unfamiliar with in a format that is comfortable, intimate and unique”.
Now living in Co. Clare, Regina Nathan has performed many of the great soprano roles delighting audiences in some of the world’s most renowned opera houses. She brings to bear a vast range of singing skills, knowledge and experience, from working with world opera’s great conductors, directors and teachers, that now manifests itself in her own innovative approach to teaching and performing.
My World is My Song offers all music lovers an opportunity to share in and experience the evocative and the provocative. It will comfort with the familiar and excite with the unique. It is, above all, an evening of entertainment designed to celebrate and extol the power of song in recounting stories.
