Fodor's Expert Review Grand Opera House
Shows from all over Ireland and Britain—and sometimes farther afield—play at this beautifully restored Victorian theater which reopened at the end of 2020 following a major refurbishment. Though it has no resident company of its own, major West End musicals and plays pass through, plus the occasional opera or ballet. It's worth attending a show just to enjoy the gigantic and splendid opera house itself. The Baby Grand—a theater-within-a-theater—hosts comedy, live music, and educational workshops, as well as film and special events. Guided backstage tours are available, mostly on alternate Saturday mornings (10:30--11:30) and cost £8.50; check the website for details.
