The intention is to keep many of the traditional shows and events that the public associate with the Gaiety, the Rathmines and Rathgar Musical Society shows, Dublin Grand Opera and symphony concerts but to also add new programming.

We get our theatre in Dublin cheaper than any other capital city in the world
