Riverdance: The Concert
Shows & Attractions
Riverdance The Concert is a special orchestral presentation of the music of acclaimed Irish composer, Bill Whelan.
Whelan is best known for his Grammy Award winning score for Riverdance – the Show which the New York Post has described “as much a phenomenon as a show”.
Riverdance The Concert will feature the Riverdance Suite, a specially arranged suite for orchestra and including all the hits from the show.
In addition the audience will be taken on a journey through some of Whelan’s other compositional work – with excerpts from his large orchestral scores The Seville Suite and the Connemara Suite, through some of his film music, songs and powerful settings of the work of leading Irish poets.
This show will feature not only orchestra and choir, but also an array of talented and engaging Irish musicians and singers, who will display Whelan’s unique ability to weave traditional instruments into the fabric of a large ensemble.
Riverdance The Concert is programmed by the composer to ensure two delicately balanced halves. Both of which will take the audience on an emotional journey, finishing with the most exciting and uplifting pieces where orchestra, soloists, vocalists and choir will join for a rousing finale.
This show is sure to bring audiences out of their seats and into the aisles!
“Triumphant! A perfect Gem”
“The phenomenon rolls on!… There will always be a Riverdance!”
