Riverdance, as you’ve never seen or heard it before!
A powerful and stirring re-invention of this beloved favourite, celebrated the world-over for its Grammy award-winning score and the excitement, energy and dynamism of its Irish and International Dance.
Twenty five years on, renowned composer Bill Whelan brings this mesmerising soundtrack back to life, completely revitalised for the first time since those original orchestral recordings. Producer Moya Doherty and Director John McColgan have produced an amazing new 25th Anniversary production with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, staging and costume design, and an all-new finale number which will blow audiences away.
Immerse yourself in the extraordinary power and grace of music and dance – beloved by fans of all ages. Fall in love with the magic of Riverdance all over again.

"The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we've ever documented our existence, it's all through an art form."
