Sizzle Reel - Riverdance

Sizzle Reel

With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, Riverdance broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin in 1995. When the show transferred to London and New York, the audience reaction was unprecedented and Riverdance emerged as a worldwide phenomenon. Almost three decades of international touring followed with Riverdance performances selling out theatres and capturing the hearts of millions.

The show’s Grammy award-winning music and the infectious energy of its mesmerising choreography and breathtaking performances has left audiences in awe and established Riverdance as a global cultural sensation.

As its 30th Anniversary approaches, the much-loved original show has been rejuvenated with new innovative choreography and costumes and state of the art lighting, projection and motion graphics. Composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerizing soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking production. Audiences of all ages will enjoy a unique and memorable performance which blends the traditional and the contemporary, showcasing the skill and passion of the world-class of dancers, musicians and singers in the Riverdance ensemble.
