Dublin's newest major theatre (it debuted in late 2010), the Grand Canal is an intimate venue (seating 2,200) for ballet, classical music, rock 'n' roll -- anything that sits well in a glittering new theatre with exquisite acoustics and perfect sightlines. Designed by New York architect Daniel Libeskind, the iconic, crooked theater building slants louchely on the edge of the canal in the Docklands.
