St David’s Hall
Tuesday 7 – Sunday 12 April
(Plus a matinee on Saturday 11 April at 2.30pm)
THE breathtaking Lord of the Dance extravaganza is set to take St David’s Hall by storm with seven spectacular shows over six days (7-12 April).
Dangerous Games is the latest instalment in the iconic series, and the scale of the 18-month world tour is jaw-dropping with over 200 dates booked across 15 countries featuring stunning staging, cool costumes and perfectly precise choreography.
Plus, these shows are even more unmissable than ever before as they mark Michael Flatley’s last ever involvement with Lord of the Dance! He said: “These will be my final performances in the UK and Ireland. After years of punishment, my body just can’t take any more!”
The iconic Irishman created the legendary series following the huge success of Riverdance. Since its premiere in Dublin in 1996, Lord of the Dance has captivated global audiences, and been performed everywhere from Disneyland to the Oscars!
And now nearly 20 years later, for his emotional farewell tour Flatley will be directing 40 of the world’s most outstanding young performers with the new shows promising to combine the classic with the very best new music and dance. This tour also features the most exciting and most ground-breaking new technology yet. Expect everything from hair-raising holograms to amazing acrobats and dancing robots!
Stepping into Michael Flatley’s huge shoes is young superstar James Keegan, who will be performing the lead role of the Lord of the Dance. He’s got his work cut out too as Flatley entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 1989 for a tapping speed of 28 taps per second! He then subsequently broke his own record in 1998 with an unbelievable 35 taps per second!
Accompanying an incredible troupe of the world’s best dancing talent is a new score composed by Gerard Fahy, which adds an awe-inspiring extra dimension to the original masterpiece.
Flatley’s incredibly innovative performance of Riverdance at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest changed the face of dance forever, but he remains remarkably modest despite his enormous success. Talking of the Dangerous Games tour, he said: “I’m blown away by the remarkable talent and abilities of the great cast we’ve gathered…My dancers are the real stars.”
