The numbers speak for themselves: In its 25 years, the show has performed in more than 15,000 performances in 49 countries on five continents - and fascinated more than 30 million viewers. Since the Irish music producer and composer Bill Whelan brought "Riverdance" to the stage at the end of the last millennium, the piece has told the alternating, sometimes tragic, often cheerful and always touching story of the Irish people - revolving around themes such as emigration and farewell, departure and homecoming. Coupled with international dance styles such as flamenco, breakdance and Russian folklore, the show symbolises the different influences and the peaceful coexistence of the various cultures.
On 13 December 2024, the breathtaking tempo of the perfectly rehearsed step choreography will also captivate the audience. According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the "greatest dance spectacle of all time" will once again thrill audiences with its stage and costume design, a fabulous light show - and, of course, the first-class live interpretation of the original soundtrack, which Bill Whelan has now rearranged for the 25th anniversary.
