After continually traversing the globe since its breakout television performance nearly 18 years ago, Riverdance returns stateside for a last hurrah. A cast of six principal dancers will clobber the stage with the stomps, taps, kicks, and tackles of traditional Irish step dancing, which, when synchronized with a live band and 18 troupe dancers, sends waves of rhythm cascading over all 2,564 seats of the regal Modell Performing Arts Center. The show’s 18 scenes break into two acts: the first depicting the mythical beginnings of the Celtic people as they hatched from a kelpie's head, and the second portraying the Irish famine and ensuing wave of emigration.

In a middle sequence inspired by this diaspora, global culture begins to broaden Irish dance vocabulary with choreography borrowed from other nations and teen cheerleading movies. Graceful arm movements in The Countess Cathleen signal the Moscow Folk Ballet’s influence, Latin flair fires up the Andalucía piece, and Trading Taps draws out parallels between Irish and American art forms. The show’s energy electrifies fans of all ages, particularly children seeking to add new moves to their temper tantrums.

The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric

The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric has a deep history that stretches back to the 1890s, when frequent polkas filled the air on summer evenings and the walls were decked out in beer-garden fashion. Throughout the following century, acts ranging from demonstrations of electric cooking to performances by Ella Fitzgerald and Robin Williams have inspired awe and given cause for recent restoration.
