Bord Gais Energy Theatre
Ireland’s most significant and premier theatre, the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, is a 2,111-capacity auditorium which opened on 18 March 2010. A combination of modernity and old-school glitz, since opening, the Bord Gais Energy Theatre has entertained half a million theatregoers every year, presenting something for everyone via a very diverse programme of theatrical experiences designed to meet everyone’s passion and interests, including ballets, musicals, family shows, drama, concerts, comedy, orchestral and opera.
Daniel Libeskind of New York and RHWL Architects of London designed the spectacular theatre in the redeveloped Grand Canal Dock area. The concept of the building was created by Mike Adamson of Live Nation and the Docklands Development Authority as a touring theatre for Ballet, Opera, Musicals and Concerts in response to the increasing demand to present theatrical productions that were previously unable to visit Ireland. The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is a fantastic night out for anyone who wants to be at the forefront of the Dublin cultural scene and is one of the major attractions not to be missed by anyone visiting Dublin.
