Riverdance is celebrating its 25th anniversary at Radio City Music Hall for a multiple night engagement in New York City. The world-renowned Irish dance production will play at the landmark venue from March 10-15, 2020, just ahead of St. Patrick’s Day.
In addition to its Radio City Music Hall run, the acclaimed show will launch a North American tour in Montreal in January 2020 and tour across 45 cities. The spectacular production will also return to the original Dublin 3Arena venue where the first Riverdance show debuted 25 years ago. It will run from Feb. 6-9, 2020.
Tickets for all Radio City Music Hall tour dates go on sale to the general public on Friday, Oct. 11.
Riverdance launched its meteoric rise to fame after delivering a critically acclaimed interval performance during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. In the wake of its massive positive public response, the seven-minute routine expanded into a full-scale production.
Opening at the Point Theatre in Dublin, the scintillating presentation made history as the first-ever Irish dance show. It played there for a sold-out five-week run.
Riverdance’s smashing success in its home country of Ireland spread quickly into London and throughout the UK. Rave reviews and record-breaking video sales spawned a worldwide Irish dance craze.
The dazzling dance extravaganza made its North American debut at Radio City Music Hall in New York in March 1996. Since then, the show has delighted Irish music and dance fans across multiple generations all over the globe.
Today, the Riverdance creative team and cast are taking the show to a new and exciting level to celebrate its milestone quarter-century anniversary. Moya Doherty is producing it and John McColgan is the show’s director.
Part of Riverdance’s infectious appeal is the bold, energetic fusion of music and dance. The production celebrates Irish culture and dance on a scale that no other show has aspired to reach. Overall, the world-class dancers deliver a breathtaking, unforgettable performance.
The New York Post said, “Riverdance is as much a phenomenon as a show.” The Globe and Mail called it “A Riverdance to Love! Exciting! Hypnotic! Thrilling!”
There’s nothing quite like witnessing the magic and wonder of all that Riverdance delivers live and in-person —especially in an iconic theatrical setting like Radio City Music Hall. The special 25th-anniversary engagement will undoubtedly resonate with audiences long after the curtain falls on the final performance.
