THE international dance phenomenon Lord of the Dance will captivate audiences in Bristol next month.
Created by Michael Flatley, it has toured around the globe since 1996. Seen by 60 million people across the continents, Lord of the Dance has shattered box office records worldwide.
It will take to the stage at The Bristol Hippodrome from January 23-29 with a brand new electrifying production.
Audiences young and old will be captivated by state-of-the-art lighting and pyrotechnics, a spectacular multi-media set design incorporating video screens, elevated platform effects and striking new costumes.
This masterfully-orchestrated production of precision dancing, combined with a musical score that leaves no soul untouched, will thrill theatre-goers.
From the moment the lights go down to the last encore, they will be taken on a magical, mythical journey inspired by Irish folklore expressed through the universal language of music and dance.
The story unfolds of the Little Spirit, travelling through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the challenge of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord.
As this evil dark force challenges the hero, an incredible adventure ensues, drawing you into a universe full of love, danger, desire, and ultimate triumph.
