The Bord Gáis Energy
Bord Gáis Energy
is a theatre in Dublin, Ireland
which opened on 18 March 2010. Designed by Daniel Libeskind
Daniel Libeskind
of New York and RHWL Architects of London, it is located in the Grand Canal Dock
Grand Canal Dock
area and the concept of the theatre was created by Mike Adamson of Live Nation and the Docklands Development Authority as a touring theatre for Ballet, Opera, Musicals and Concerts.[1] About[edit]

The theatre seen at night

It was officially opened with a performance of Swan Lake
Swan Lake
by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia.[2] It is the largest theatre in Ireland
and is designed to present theatrical productions that were previously unable to visit Ireland. The acoustic, theatre technical systems, structural and building services designs were by Arup. Chartered Land were the developers and funders of the theatre and Harry Crosbie is the lease holder. The theatre is located across the River Liffey
River Liffey
from the larger 14,000-capacity concert venue, the 3Arena. The building was opened as the Grand Canal Theatre, but was renamed during March 2012 as part of a naming rights agreement with Bord Gáis Energy[3][4] worth a reported €4.5 million.[citation needed] It is due to have this name until 2018 at least. Bord Gáis is Irish for Gas Board. In March 2016 the theatre hosted 'RTÉ Centenary', a concert for television to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the 1916 Rising.[5] References[edit]
