Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance is the extravaganza that helped catapult Irish dancing into the global spotlight and created a new wave of Celtic dance mania.
In less than five years, the show has brought a staggering 50 million people worldwide to their feet at sold out theaters, arenas and stadiums.
Michael Flatley, who originated the role of the Lord, serves as the artistic director and continues to oversee all aspects of the production. The first American to win the All-world Championship in Irish Dance, Flatley opened the show in Dublin in 1996 and is listed in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's fastest feet: 35 taps per second.
Said Flatley. "We've combined traditional and modern forms of dance to create a high octane blend with soulful beats and feet that move too fast to comprehend."
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 transports 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-art staging, lighting and pyrotechnics.
