Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance presents an international dance phenomenon spawned by the success of its predecessor, Riverdance. It is a mesmerizing blend of traditional and Celtic music and dance. The story is a classic tale of good vs. evil based on old Irish folklore as Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord, challenges the Lord of the Dance. It is also a passionate love story that is expressed through dance numbers that transport audiences into a mystical and exhilarating world of intense passion. The action is played out on a grand scale with precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful costumes, state-of-the-art staging, lighting and pyrotechnics.
