Following its world-premiere engagement in Dublin, with sold-out runs in both Ireland and China, Heartbeat of Home will stop at the Oriental Theatre as part of its first North American tour. Created by the producers and director of Riverdance, this high-octane extravaganza features components of traditional Irish, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and dance. Thirty-seven hand-picked dancers from around the world come together for a performance that the Irish Independent calls "a mix of foreplay, seduction and simulation." And it's all backed by a live 10-piece band playing music by Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne. Learn More
