Riverdance at The Gaiety

Riverdance at The Gaiety
Of all the performances to emerge from Ireland - in rock, music, theatre and film - nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. 

And this summer, visitors to Dublin can experience this legendary dance and music extravaganza at the Gaiety Theatre from 26 June - 2 September 2012

With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin in 1995. It then transferred to London where the unprecedented reaction increased the original ten performances to 151. 

A hugely successful tour followed to New York, Belfast and Cork and, since those early days, it has packed theatres across North America, Oceania, Asia and Europe. 

Currently there is one Riverdance production each touring in North America (the Shannon) and through Australasia (the Moy). And every summer a third company (the Foyle) plays here in Dublin and in cities across Ireland. 

Riverdance was initially performed as a seven-minute interval act at Dublin's 1994 Eurovision Song Contest. Its innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song draws on Irish traditions and combines the talents of performers as they propel Irish dancing and music into the present day. 

Up to 65 cast and crew members, with the remarkable Riverdance Irish Dance Troupe, the cream of Irish musicians in the Riverdance Band and a spectacular array of international guest artists, perform to the magic of Bill Whelan’s music in this not-to be-missed spectacular.
