The show which put Irish dance on the world stage comes to the Hammersmith Apollo
The most successful touring show in entertainment history is set to fill out the Hammersmith Apollo for five performances this winter, from 16th to 18th December 2011, when Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance arrives in London.
For visitors travelling from outside London to see the world-renowned Irish dance extravaganza which has been watched by over 50 million people in 60 different countries, the website LondonTown.com offers an easy way to book from a selection of cheap London hotels close to the Hammersmith Apollo.
The latest version of Lord Of The Dance, every bit as good as when it was first performed at The Point Theatre in Dublin in 1996, focuses on themes of Good and Evil, as Little Spirit travels through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the dastardly challenge of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord.
The show, described by the Los Angeles Times as a "show piece extravaganza", features more than 150,000 taps per performance as it transports the audience to a mythical time and place, capturing hearts in a swirl of movement, striking costumes, precision dancing, artistic lighting, and pyrotechnics. The skill and stamina of the dance troupe, the haunting music and the special effects all make for an electric atmosphere.
Not only has the Lord Of The Dance broken box office records worldwide, it is also recognised as the world's highest grossing dance show, selling in excess of $500,000,000 worth of tickets. Now this hugely successful show makes another debut with a brand new production coming to the UK from December 2011 to April 2012, travelling from London to Blackpool, Belfast and Aberdeen.
