Watch: Glen Hansard perform with the cast of Once the Musical, Dublin

Set in Dublin, Once, the smash-hit, award-winning musical has been extended at the Olympia Theatre until 12 September 2015 due to public demand. Tickets.

Having captured hearts around the world, Once The Musical has opened to rave reviews and sustained standing ovations as audiences have immediately leaped to their feet following every single performance for its very special Dublin homecoming. With its touching love story, glorious music and irresistible humour, Once is a celebration of music, love, and the city that inspired it.

One very lucky Olympia Theatre audience was delighted last week as Glen Hansard took to the stage to perform ‘The Auld Triangle‘ with the cast following their performance.

John Carney, who came to see the show with Glen Hansard and the theatre and film producer Barbara Broccoli (one of the original producers of Once on Broadway, and producer of the James Bond films) said: “I filmed much of Once on  the streets around the Olympia Theatre. So to see it up on stage there now, in such a fantastic production as this, is so rewarding. I’ve seen the show in a lot of cities over the last few years, but seeing it in Dublin really completes the circle.”
