Waltz Of My Heart (The Ivor Novello Songbook)

NCH, Friday 16th August 2019

Composer. Impressario. Stage actor. Matinee Idol. Hollywood star. Ivor Novello was the quintessential 20th Century Man. His songs were the soundtrack to the war years and are some of the finest compositions in the catalogue of 20th century music.

Join soprano Sandra Oman, tenor Richard Shaffrey and baritone Simon Morgan, in the atmosphere of Novello's drawing room, to hear them reminisce about the exotic life of the great man – his being directed by Alfred Hitchcock, his Hollywood period, the stories behind the composition of his great stage musicals – and hear them perform his most beloved songs: We'll Gather Lilacs, Keep the Home Fires Burning, Waltz of my Heart, My Dearest Dear, And her Mother Came Too, My Life Belongs to You, Fold Your Wings, Shine through my Dreams, and Someday my Heart will awake.

Step back into the 1930's Novello Drawing Room for a lunchtime celebration of one of the most popular entertainers of the first half of the 20th century.

It is salty and sweet, and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to The Rotunda Hospital where Sharon's baby, The Snapper, is born… In 2018 the Gate Theatre commissioned Roddy Doyle to write a stage version of his much loved Dublin novel The Snapper. This new adaptation played to packed houses in 2018, bringing in new audiences

The Ark

So you think that you know the story of Goldilocks? Think again! This summer, enter the world of SCRAPEFOOT, a walk-through visual art experience for audiences of just four people at a time. Goldilocks wasn't always blonde! In fact, over time she has morphed from a fox called SCRAPEFOOT into an old hag, and finally into the Goldilocks we know today. What remains the same in each version of the story, is that they each entered a house in the woods (when nobody was home), to feast, sleep and shelter. Now it's your turn to explore this enchanting house but beware of the three figures who might
