Photographer's Note

It seems to me that Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is the Noel's favourite place in Dublin. I saw several of his shots of this place here and of course, I wanted to see it. When I arrived there after the whole day sightseeing it was already night. I was lucky (again!) because the red poles were brightly lit, in Noel's photos they were dark and there were only these fluorescent green parts lit. Not much other lights so I could not appreciate the architecture of the whole theatre and found this quite difficult to make decent photo.

The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is a 2,111-capacity theatre in Dublin, Ireland which opened on 18 March 2010. Designed by Daniel Libeskind it is located in the Grand Canal Dock area as a touring theatre for Ballet, Opera, Musicals and Concerts.
It was officially opened with a performance of Swan Lake by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia. The building was opened as the Grand Canal Theatre, but was renamed during March 2012 as part of a naming rights agreement with Bord Gáis worth a reported €4.5 million. It will have this name until 2018 at least.
