Press Release – Sandra Roberts
The world’s most successful dance show explodes onto the New Zealand stage this August with a spectacular new staging of Michael Flatley’s masterpiece – Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games. The theatrical extravaganza opens in Wellington on 25 August. Tickets will be on sale from 5pm on 22 May.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games enjoyed a sell-out season in London’s West End last year, returning to the Dominion Theatre in March 2015 due to overwhelming popular demand. This international production comes to New Zealand as part of a 15 country-tour, following an extensive UK tour.

Michael Flatley brought Irish Dance into the global spotlight more than 21 years ago, going on to create Lord of the Dance in 1996. Since then his name and the Lord of the Dance brand have become synonymous with spectacular artistry and grand scale productions that have mesmerized more than 60 million people in 68 countries around the world.

Flatley’s new show 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, stunning new costumes and special effect lighting add a breath-taking new dimension to the original masterpiece.

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. The story is a classic tale of good vs evil based on old Irish folklore, as well as a passionate love story expressed through dance.

This latest version of the global dance phenomenon combines the best of tradition with all the excitement of new music and heart-stopping dance, making it perfect family entertainment.

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