Once at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin
Set in Dublin, Once is the smash-hit award-winning show that’s a celebration of music, love and the city that inspired it.
Once is about the power of music and following your dreams, wherever they may take you. The stunning music, including the Oscar-winning Falling Slowly, is performed by an extraordinary cast of actor musicians who sing, dance and play their hearts out on stage.
Based on the movie sensation of the same name, written and directed by John Carney (Sing Street, Begin Again, Once), the show features music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, and a Tony award-winning book by Enda Walsh.
Once is a funny, moving and life-affirming love story with glorious music… and the city’s only on-stage bar. Where else can you walk onto the set of one of Dublin’s most beautiful and historic theatres; it’s a ‘once’ in a lifetime experience.
Seeing Once where it all began, at home in Dublin, is incredibly special.
