Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show

Sunday, Nov. 28 at 4 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m.

Filmed on the 25th anniversary of its first full performance at the 3Arena in Dublin, the “Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show” is a powerful and stirring reinvention of this beloved family favorite.

Twenty-five years ago, seven minutes changed the face of Irish dancing forever. The Eurovision Song Contest interval act performance by Riverdance gave millions of people a new and exciting glimpse of the future of Irish dance.

New and extraordinarily evocative video backdrops call forth the beauty and mystery of the island and enhance the show’s central theme, chronicling the emotional upheaval of the migration to a new Irish life in America. An incredible new generation of dancers and musicians, including a fantastic 17-year-old fiddler from New Jersey, brings fresh energy to the production.
