Following the phenomenal success of its 2015 UK tour, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games show is returning to the Brighton Centre next month to wow the crowds!
Running from Friday, February 10 – Sunday, February 12 Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games continues to thrill audiences around the world – recent venues include Brussels and Prague.
The stage show offers an intoxicating mix of dance and music that fuses the traditional with the contemporary in a classic tale that showcases an exceptionally talented young cast of performers.
Celebrating 20 years since the debut of the show Lord of the Dance, Flatley’s UK tour will present his protégés James Keegan, Morgan Comer and Matthew Smith in the role of the Lord of the Dance.
The show is produced, choreographed and directed by the Chicago-born Irish dance legend Michael Flatley who found huge fame across the UK and globally in the Irish dance show Riverdance.
In 1994 Flatley changed the art of Irish dance forever with his breath-taking creation of Riverdance – a high energy take on a centuries-old cultural icon that would find fans as far afield as Australia.[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=”800″]

The show first made the stage as an interval act at the Eurovision Song Contest being staged in Dublin almost 23-years-ago, but it soon proved popular enough to become a full-length show.
As well as Flatley, the show featured Irish dancing champion Jean Butler, going on to visit more than 450 venues worldwide and be seen by more than 25 million people and win numerous awards.
Flatley went on to create Lord of the Dance in Dublin in 1996, and it has since become synonymous with spectacular artistry and grand scale productions which mesmerise audiences in attendance.
With all the precision and thrills of the original, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games features new staging, cutting edge technology, new costumes, choreography and world champion acrobats.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games premiered at the Palladium Theatre in London’s West End in 2014 before moving to the Dominion Theatre in 2015 as well as other UK venues.
The show has now gone on to Broadway in New York, and it was in the theatre district that Flatley opened a section of the city’s famous 42nd Street Flatley Way in his and the show’s honour.[tie_slideshow] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [tie_slide] [/tie_slide] [/tie_slideshow]
