Lord of the Dance
Already over 3.6 million spectators in the German-speaking area
For over thirteen years, Lord of the Dance has been thrilling people from all over the world, and the march of triumph of the most spectacular step show of all continues around the globe. An incredible audience of 3.6 million in the German speaking countries alone, and over 75 million internationally, make of Lord of the Dance the most popular show of our times.
Nearly 800 performances in Germany, Austria and Switzerland demonstrate the unique success of the Irish step dance revolutionaries, and yet, the enthusiasm of the audiences still does not seem to be exhausted. Countless fans yearly look forward to this fascinating show and its outstanding dancers, which has meanwhile become a cult event.
Lord of the Dance provides entertainment with a NEW dimension. The ‘click-clack of the killer-heels‘ experiences a triumph without equal. This ingenious synthesis of dance, folklore and show that has become a phenomenal magnet to spectators is considered the hottest ever concert event in the history of show business. ‘Step dancing that echoes like thunder‘ or ‘furious and convincing’ are only two headline examples, while others have praised it as ‘a show of titanic proportions combining perfection, art and body’. The Anglo-American media have used superlatives such as ‘The best worldwide’ (Los Angeles Times), ‘Incredible’ (Time Magazine) and ‘The world lies at their feet’ (New York Times).
Lord of the Dance has left all other highlights of show business, entertainment, or rock and pop way behind. The audiovisual opulence of the show combines folklore, high-tech pop art and Irish-American step dancing with an affinity to flamenco, to a rhythmic, melodic and visual performance without comparison, and the highly committed cast unfailingly manages to transport the audience into a euphoric mood. The creator of this show and super step dancer Michael Flatley now mainly concentrates, apart from very few exceptions, on his work as producer and choreographer. Although various step dancing stars are used alternatively in the leading roles, Lord of the Dance has always managed to maintain its fascination and format, as proved in numerous world tours. At the forthcoming two tours, Michael Flatley will not appear personally on stage.
