Generations of audiences - more than 60 million people from 68 countries - have seen Lord of the Dance (www.lordofthedance.com), the world's highest grossing Irish Dance show. Creator and Artistic Director Michael Flatley, who added fresh costumes, a visually stimulating set featuring an LED wall, and revised lighting and set designs this year, still oversees all aspects of the production.
"I've always dreamed of creating an Irish Dance show that touches the hearts of millions of people worldwide," says Flatley. "I am so proud of the cast and crew who bring this vision to life on stage each and every night."
Presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, Lord of the Dance is a classic tale of good versus evil based on mythical Irish folklore that brings a romantic and passionate love story to stage. Don Dorcha, Lord of Darkness, challenges the ethereal lord of light, the Lord of the Dance. "Battle lines are drawn, passions ignite and a love story fueled by the dramatic leaps and turns of dancers' bodies begins to build against a backdrop of Celtic rhythm," says Flatley. "Fans can expect 21 scenes of precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful wardrobes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting."
