The National Concert Hall in Dublin hosts some of Ireland’s best classical music and opera, being the home of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. The neoclassical hall first opened over 150 years ago, and the premises were for a long time part of the University of Dublin; not regaining their original, musical purpose until 1981. Today the venue is the biggest classical concert hall in Ireland, hosting famous singers such as Lesley Garrett and players such as violinist Nigel Kennedy.
Together with symphonic and operatic performance, the NCH also puts on numerous musicals, with best loved classics such as Oliver! performed on a yearly recurring basis. The frequent themed galas, together with performances of operatic and instrumental groups, plus taster concerts of all-time favourite composers, keep the roster fresh and broadly appealing to locals and tourists in Dublin.
