Michael Flatley’s ground-breaking choreography for Riverdance was followed by massive global success with the hit show Lord of the Dance.
Michael Flatley once said, “Everyone in the world will tell you, ‘No, it can’t be done.’ Every time I hear that, I know I’m close to success.” This philosophy was a main driving factor in the journey of Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, which Flatley began developing in 1995 following his departure from Riverdance.
For a quarter of a century, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance has been dazzling audiences across the globe with its unique combination of high-energy Irish dancing, original music, storytelling and sensuality.
Since its premier 25 years ago, it has become one of the most successful touring productions in entertainment history, having been seen by over 60 million people.
This show will go to the next level in 2023 for it’s 25th-anniversary tour. Fans can expect new staging, new costumes and choreography, plus cutting-edge technology, special effects and remarkable lighting.
As the 25th anniversary of the Lord of the Dance approaches, Flatley is hard at work preparing a celebration worthy of one of the world’s great entertainment experiences.
