"This Is Ireland" was a good show but did not focus on Ireland and its music. Though a soprano sang a piece from Madama Butterfly beautifully, I would have preferred a song of Ireland and the same goes for the Irish Black American who sang a contemporary piece which had no reference to Ireland. There was a large movie screen above the orchestra which could have been used more effectively showing Ireland of the present and of the past-instead it was wasted.
