- Situated in the heart of the city beside the river Lee, the Opera House has been providing Cork with entertainment of varying kinds for many years. The building is modern, it was constructed in 1965 after its predecessor had been destroyed by fire ten years before. There are large windows at the front allowing a view of the city to those enjoying a drink in the attractive bar. The programme of events is varied, and includes opera, drama, music and films. Recent productions have included Aida, the acclaimed Druid production of Martin McDonagh's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, and the final of the legendary "Over 60s" talent show. At the beginning of October, the Opera House is the base of the Cork Film Festival. It has a capacity of around one thousand.
