It's been 10 years since Riverdance first stomped its way into the hearts of millions around the world. To celebrate this major milestone, the show returns to where it was first introduced to American audiences - New York's famed Radio City Music Hall, for a very special limited engagement.
Of all the performances to emerge from Ireland in the past decade, nothing can compare to the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has played over 8,000 performances, been seen live by more than 18 million people in over 250 venues throughout 30 countries across 4 continents. They have traveled over 500,000 miles (or to the moon and back!), played to a worldwide television audience of over 1.5 billion; sold over 2.5 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and sold over 9 million videos making it one of the best-selling entertainment videos in the world!
An innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song, Riverdance draws on Irish traditions and the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music to the present day capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. The international company of 70 performers include the remarkable Riverdance Irish Dance Troupe, the cream of Irish musicians in the Riverdance orchestra and a spectacular array of talents from Spain, Russia and America, all performing to the magic of Bill Whelan's music.
