July 3, 2013
On Saturday 20th July a very special open-air event will take place in Merrion Square, Dublin as part of Riverdance The Gathering.
Following 19 years of global touring Riverdance will be presented in its city of birth in a brand new format – Riverdance on Screen.
Riverdance: On Screen will feature a giant HD video screen and the live Riverdance band. The audience on the night will be the first ever to experience this unique presentation of 80 minutes of selected highlights of Riverdance through the years on screen accompanied by a live performance of Bill Whelan’s’ Grammy winning score.
Riverdance: On Screen will give the audience an unprecedented opportunity to see Riverdance as it was performed in 1995 in The Point Depot Dublin, in 1996 in Radio City Music Hall, New York, in 2002 in The Premiere Arena, Geneva and more recently in 2010 in The Beijing Exhibition Centre in Beijing, as well as hearing the stirring score performed live by the cream of Irish musicians in what promises to be a cultural highlight event of The Gathering 2013.
Acclaimed singer songwriter Eleanor McEvoy will also make a guest appearance to perform her version of Lift the Wings from the stage show.
Riverdance: On Screen will be preceded by Brian Kennedy, featured soloist of Riverdance on Broadway accompanied by his band in concert.
