Swan Lake

If you are looking to add a bit of ballet to your life, there are two excellent options for legendary Swan Lake! Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is taking place in the Bord Gais Energy Theater from 26Feb-2nd March. This version is probably best known of replacing female part of the cast with male, turning traditional upside down. If however you prefer a more traditional version of the Ballet, go to Helix on 2nd of March where The Royal Moscow Ballet presents Swan Lake.


Over The Top Wrestling Presents “Homecoming 2” Supershow on 17th of February. For the first time EVER OTT comes LIVE from Dublin’s National Basketball Arena. Featuring WWEUK, The Import Killer Jordan Devlin, Former WWE Star PAC, Ilja Dragunov, The Aerial assassin Will Ospreay, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, OTT GN Champion Mark Haskins and  a 20Ft High Steel Cage Match. Sounds fun!

There is also rugby, with 6 nations coming to Dublin for one of the matches. David Duchovny, better known as Fox Mulder from the cult TVshow X files has a live gig, and so does Professor Brian Cox.
