LORD OF THE DANCE (article first published : 1999-12-29)

Lord of the Dance was conceptualised by Michael Flatley and staged within eight weeks of its conception. Since then, the Celtic dance extravaganza has thrilled audiences and broken records around the world. Touring South Africa for a three-month period next year (2000), Lord of the Dance will feature Damien O'Kane for most of the South African tour in the Flatley role with Bernadette Flynn dancing the female lead.

The average age of the dancers is 22 and the show has been performed in 18 different countries and seen live by more than five million people. In the USA, the show's video was the Christmas No 1 in 1996 and collected 12 platinum sales awards. The video has since been verified as the biggest selling performance video of all time, selling more than 4,2 million copies worldwide.

The show is presented by Big Concerts in association with The Star, e-TV and 94.7 Highveld Stereo. It comes to Durban to the Playhouse Opera from April 11 to 23. There will also be performances in Johannesburg (Civic Theatre: February 10 to March 19); Cape Town (Nico Opera House: March 21 to April 2), Bloemfontein (Sand du Plessis Theatre: April 4 to 9).
