Exploding onto the Australian stage this September, with a spectacular new staging, is Michael Flatley’s masterpiece – Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, the world’s most successful dance show. This international production comes to Australia as part of a 15 country tour, following an extensive UK tour, after Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games enjoyed a sell-out season in London’s West End last year and a return to The Dominion Theatre in March 2015 due to overwhelming popular demand.
More than twenty-one years ago, Michael Flatley brought Irish Dance into the global spotlight and went on to create Lord of the Dance in 1996. Since then his name and the Lord of the Dance brand have become synonymous with spectacular artistry and grand scale productions that have mesmerised more than 60 million people in 68 countries around the world.
The story is a classic tale of good versus evil, based on old Irish folklore, as well as a passionate love story expressed through dance.
Exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and 34 of the greatest Irish Dancers in the world, along with a new score composed by Gerard Fahy, new choreography, stunning new costumes and special effect lighting are some of the features that add a breath-taking new dimension to the original masterpiece.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games will captivate audiences with its dance styles which have evolved over more than 2,000 years and are rooted in the traditional form of Irish dance.
This latest version of the global dance phenomenon combines the best of tradition with all the excitement of new music and heart-stopping dance, making it perfect family entertainment.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is created, directed and choreographed by Michael Flatley and produced in Australia by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Base Entertainment Asia.
Performing in Melbourne from 29 September to 4 October 2015 at the Arts Centre Melbourne, State Theatre followed by Sydney from 20 October to 25 October 2015 at the Capitol Theatre.
