Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games sold out at London’s Dominion Theatre in the West End last year, followed by an extensive UK tour. This Australian season is part of a 15 country tour.

Michael Flately helped to bring Irish Dance to popular consciousness over 21 years ago, creating Lord of the Dance, his most famous work, in 1996.  Lord of the Dance captivates audiences with its mesmerising dance styles rooted in the traditional form of Irish dance that has evolved over more than 2,000 years.

Dangerous Games has exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats, and 34 of the greatest Irish Dancers in the world.  A new score composed by Gerard Fahy, new choreography, new costumes and special effect lighting add a new dimension to the original masterpiece.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is created, directed and choreographed by Michael Flatley and is produced in Australia by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Base Entertainment Asia.

Tickets go on sale at 5pm, 22 May. For more information on each season, and to find tickets, visit www.lordofthedance.com
