The new 25th Anniversary show catapults Riverdance into the 21st century and will completely immerse you in the extraordinary and elemental power of its music and dance. This powerful and stirring reinvention of the beloved family favourite is celebrated the world over for its Grammy Award-winning music and the thrilling energy of its Irish and international dance. Filmed live at the 3Arena Dublin, the exact spot where it all began, the 25th Anniversary Gala Performance brings Riverdance to the big screen for the very first time! “The Riverdance Irish Dance Troupe are all world-class Irish dancers… While most are from Ireland, some come from Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. The sheer passion, energy, and bold display of unfeasible athleticism are enough to keep an audience’s eyes glued to the stage and their feet tapping throughout the entire two-hour performance. Add in four extremely talented and well-regarded musicians performing a Grammy-award-winning score and stunning graphics projected as thematic transition pieces, and Riverdance continues to live up to and surpass its prestigious reputation… Solos performed by the award-winning musicians were interwoven between the dance numbers, which included a Harlem tap-dancing turned light-hearted duel, Spanish flamenco performed by the magnificent Rocio Montoya, and even Hopak – a Ukrainian folk dance.” —Katie Priest, Third Coast Review (Stage review)
