Due to phenomenal demand, the record-breaking stage show Once returns to the Olympia Theatre, Dublin for 8 weeks only in summer 2017.

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.

Based on the movie sensation of the same name, written and directed by John Carney (Sing StreetBegin AgainOnce), the show features music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, and a Tony award-winning book by Enda Walsh.

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.

Starring Brian Gilligan as Guy and Niamh Perry as Girl, ONCE is running at the Olympia Theatre from 30 June – 26 August, 2017.
