“We are excited to be bringing back this international dance sensation,” said Rachel Traversari, Senior Director of Marketing at DPAC. “Not only did fans love the original production, but they’re sure to love this fresh take where modern meets tradition in DANGEROUS GAMES, and we’re happy to be a part of this new tour in the U.S.”

LORD OF THE DANCE premiered at the magnificent Coliseum in London two decades ago, and in 2014 Michael Flatley transformed the show making it even more thrilling than the original.

LORD OF THE DANCE: DANGEROUS GAMES with music composed by Gerard Fahy premiered at the iconic London Palladium in September 2014 to mark the milestone 20th anniversary since Michael Flatley became an international sensation.

The show has since gone on to enjoy hugely successful runs in the West End, Broadway, the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.

LORD OF THE DANCE: DANGEROUS GAMES continues to thrill audiences around the globe with its intoxicating mix of dance and music that fuses the traditional with the contemporary in a classic tale that showcases the exceptional talent of the cast.

The show features cutting edge technology including a giant Radiant flat screen that spans the width of the stage, special effects lighting, dancing robots and world champion acrobats.
