If you like ‘spectacular’ then you’ll love Lord of the Dance
Finally! The global Irish Dance Phenomenon is coming to South-East Queensland. Michael Flately is presenting his show piece extravaganza, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games in Brisbane, at the QPAC Concert Hall, Corner Melbourne and Grey Streets, South Brisbane from Tuesday, 13 to Friday 16 October, 2015 with shows on each evening plus a matinee at 1.00pm on Wednesday, 14 October, 2015. On the Gold Coast the production will go on stage at the Jupiters Hotel and Casino, Corner of Gold Coast Highway and Hooker Boulevard, Broadbeach at 8.00pm on Saturday, 17 and 2.00pm and 7.00pm on Sunday 18 October, 2015.
Tickets for the QPAC shows start at $69.90 (plus a $6.20 transaction fee) and can be obtained on-line here.
If you would prefer to take in the show and maybe enjoy a weekend down on the Coast then ticket prices for the Jupiters Hotel and Casino start at $91.65 (plus a $6.90 transaction fee) and can be obtained on-line from here.
Each show runs for about two hours (including a 20 minute interval) and combines the best of traditional Irish Dance but, now, with all the excitement of new music and heart-stopping dance making this an evening of perfect family entertainment.
It's now more than 21 years since Michael Flatley first brought Irish Dance to the global spotlight. Since then his name and the Lord of the Dance brand have become synonymous with spectacular artistry and grand scale productions that have mesmerized over 60 million people in 68 countries around the world.
After enjoying a sell-out season in London's West End last year and, due to overwhelming popular demand returned to The Dominion Theatre for another season in March this year, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games has now made its way to Australia as part of a 15 country-tour.
This all new spectacular includes exciting and ground-breaking new technology, such as holographs, dancing robots and special effect lighting that, together, add a breath-taking new dimension to the original masterpiece. The show includes world champion acrobats and 34 of the greatest Irish Dancers in the world. And, if that's not enough, Gerard Fahy has composed a completely new score to support the all-new choreography that helps display the stunning new costumes to their best advantage.
