Cork Opera House

Cork Opera House Review

This unattractive concrete hulk erected in 1965 replaced an ornate and much-loved opera house that was ruined in a fire. Later attempts to integrate the opera house with its neighbor, the Crawford Art Gallery, have softened the grim facade. Inside, the huge auditorium hosts theatrical productions and visiting stars of light entertainment, with the occasional opera. The piazza outside has sidewalk cafés and street performers.
