Back by popular demand, Melanie O’Reilly returns to the Wexford Arts Centre after her summer sell-out show with a celebration of the legendary Irish American jazz singer Anita O’Day, capturing the essence of an unconventional musical genius.
In this special show during the Wexford Arts/Opera Festival, with additional songs from the Swing era, Melanie narrates and sings the story of O’Day, who wanted to be a jazz singer and refused to let anything stop her. The show, created and devised by O'Reilly, tells of a woman who shattered the traditional role of a “girl singer” with her smoky swinging style and brilliant sense of rhythm.
