The achingly beautiful hit musical that strikes an unforgettable chord
Following sold-out seasons in Sydney, the breathtaking musical Once makes its long-awaited return to Melbourne to make you fall in love all over again!
Once is an enchanting tale about a struggling Irish musician on the verge of giving up, when a charming Czech piano-player takes a sudden interest in his music. Set on the streets of Dublin and featuring an outstanding ensemble of performers playing their instruments live on stage, Once is a tender love story about reaching for your dreams and the power of music to connect us all.
Based on the movie of the same name by John Carney, Once features a book by Enda Walsh and music & lyrics by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová. It’s the only Broadway show with music that won an Academy Award®, Grammy Award®, Olivier Award and Tony Award® (including Best Musical).
With songs from the critically-acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning song ‘Falling Slowly’, this spellbinding musical will have you holding your breath from beginning to end.
“Original and unforgettable, Once draws you in from the very first note, grabs you by the heart strings and never lets go.”
