Abstract

This chapter examines the roles of opera and theatre in a newly internationalized Ireland, and concludes that theatre attracts more funding than opera because it is more closely associated with Irish identity-building. It draws on the theory of Pierre Bourdieu, in particular his ideas about cultural capital, fields of cultural activity and unstated doxa.
