– Riverdance Brings Irish Culture to Sydney in March 2011

Published: Mon Feb 21 2011

Riverdance, now in its 17th year, has become the most prominent Irish cultural show in the world. The March performances in Sydney mark the end for Riverdance, as they are the start of Riverdance’s Farewell Tour in Australia.

In addition to demonstrating Irish styles of dance, Riverdance will outline the history of Ireland to Australian audiences. It shows audiences Irish traditions, as well as introducing them to Irish music.

Celtic mysticism has always played a role in Irish culture, and the Farewell Tour of Riverdance will tie that in with the beauty of Irish dance. Additionally, Riverdance demonstrates how Irish dance has affected and been affected by other world cultures.

Those who attend a Sydney showing of Riverdance will enjoy the versatility of the 31 dancers. The Riverdance Irish Troupe makes up part of that group. Irish musicians will perform the soundtrack, written by Bill Whelan.

A trip to the Capitol Theatre can be a great excuse for a holiday; cheap Sydney hotels are available for those who want to stay near the theatre after their show.

Irish culture and dance fans will enjoy being part of the Riverdance Farewell Tour in Australia. It is the last time that Riverdance will be performed in Australia.
