Description

This is a powerful and stirring reinvention of the beloved family favourite, celebrated the world over for its Grammy Award-winning music and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and international dance.

Since it began, Riverdance has toured the globe. The show has been performed over 12,160 times and seen live by over 27.5 million people in 546 venues worldwide. Now it is time to celebrate another milestone on that journey.

Twenty-five years on, composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerising soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs.

The 25th Anniversary show catapults Riverdance into the 21st century and will completely immerse audiences in the extraordinary and elemental power of its music and dance.

The cast for this tour will feature, for the first time, many dancers and musicians who were not even born in the year that the show first opened; 1995 at the Point Theatre.

Twenty-five years on, both new and devoted fans of all ages will once again fall in love with the magic of Riverdance – the original, and still the best.
