New production promises new lighting, costumes and a new number
With two decades of global success since the show first burst into the public’s heart at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1994, the Riverdance UK Tour of 2016, which marks the show’s 21st birthday, visits New Wimbledon Theatre from Tuesday (April 26).
The cast features, for the first time, some dancers who were actually born in the same year that the show first opened; 1995 at the Point Theatre in Dublin!
Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has performed across the UK where it has been experienced by over 2.9 million people in well over 1000 performances. The worldwide TV audience for Riverdance is in excess of 2 billion people.
Producer Moya Doherty said: “Twenty one years after the curtains opened on the first show in 1995, we are proud to be still performing all around the world. We always look forward to our dates in the UK and these shows are sure to be very special.
"To celebrate our anniversary we have enhanced the production with new lighting, new costumes and a new number. The best of Riverdance with new energy from a stunning young cast of dancers many of whom were not yet born when the show started!”
