Original and unforgettable, Once draws you in from the very first note, grabs you by the heart strings and never lets go.
Set in modern day Dublin, Once is a tender love story of a struggling Irish musician on the verge of giving up and a piano-playing Czech immigrant who reminds him how to dream. This exhilarating musical is performed by an extraordinary ensemble of actor-musicians.
With songs from the critically acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning song ‘Falling Slowly’, this spell-binding score will have you holding your breath from beginning to end. Once is the only Broadway show to have music that won the Academy Award, Grammy Award, Olivier Award and Tony Award. Darlinghurst Theatre Company produces the Sydney premiere.
Winner of 8 Tony Awards | 1 Academy Award | 1 Grammy Award | 1 Olivier Award | 4 Drama Desk Awards
“When the violins begin to play – and the accordion and the mandolin and the guitars and the cello – the instruments swell into a collection of distinctive voices melded into a single, universal feeling… Once massages that feeling until it hurts quite exquisitely.” – The New York Times.
