MICHAEL FLATLEY'S LORD OF THE DANCE PLAYS THE BUELL THEATRE FEBRUARY 17-19
Monday, February 13, 2012

Sixteen years ago, Michael Flatley created and launched LORD OF THE DANCE, the world’s highest grossing Irish dance show selling out arenas and theatres today. Presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, LORD OF THE DANCE opens in Denver at the Buell Theatre this Friday, February 17, for five performances only. Tickets are now on sale at www.denvercenter.org or by calling 303.893.4100.

LORD OF THE DANCE is a classic tale of good versus evil, based on Irish folklore that brings a romantic and passionate love story to life. The story is based upon mythical Irish folklore as Don Dorcha, Lord of Darkness, challenges the ethereal lord of light, the Lord of the Dance. Battle lines are drawn, passions ignite and a love story fueled by the dramatic leaps and turns of dancers’ bodies begins to build against a backdrop of Celtic rhythm. The show includes 21 scenes of precision dancing, dramatic music, new colorful wardrobes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting.

Irish dance lovers and music fans alike will experience the engaging, rhythmic adventures that helped catapult Celtic dance mania and Irish dancing into the global spotlight. The New York Post raves LORD OF THE DANCE is “fascinating, rewarding and above all, entertaining.” The Los Angeles Times states it is “a showpiece extravaganza.”

Generations of audiences, more than 60 million people from 68 countries, have seen LORD OF THE DANCE. Speaking about the show’s updates, Flatley says, “We have fresh wardrobes and an exciting new set featuring elements from the successful international tour I performed in last year – we sold out more than 20 dates in the UK. Fans will see technological highlights like video incorporated into an LED wall, as well as a number of changes to the overall lighting and set designs.” Flatley retired from dancing in 2011 and is Artistic Director of LORD OF THE DANCE, overseeing all aspects of the production. LORD OF THE DANCE ticket sales exceed more than $800 million worldwide.

Along with Dance Director Marie Duffy-Pask, Flatley handpicked the cast of over 40 dancers.  Each has achieved individual recognition as a national or worldwide dance champion. Lee Marshall, CEO of MagicSpace Entertainment, the tour promoter and veteran of blockbuster entertainment events agrees stating, “These championship dancers have captivated a new generation of fans, and manage the impossible every night. Their collective spirit and energy takes the audience to a time and place that is as imaginative as it is inviting.”
