The spectacular new staging of the traditional masterpiece, which Michael Flatley premiered at the Palladium in London on September 3, launches on a world tour now.

 

The genius of Michael Flatley returns 20 years since he first brought Irish Dancing to the world stage with Lord of the Dance “Dangerous Games”. Audiences will enjoy breath taking new dances, state of the art visual technology, theatrical lighting, new sound, stunning costumes and a brand new score by music composer Gerard Fahy.

 

The characters have evolved into thrilling new personas reflecting the transformation of contemporary world. The Little Spirit, with gymnastic excellence draws the audience into the story where Don Dorcha and his followers become more powerful and fierce than ever before but on the other hand Lord of the Dance possesses more positive energy than ever. Can the Lord still win the battle?

 

Another battle, this time for the love of the Lord of the Dance impersonated by fantastic Flatley’s successors (excellent James Keegan at the Palladium), is fought between beautiful Saoirse and bewitching Morrighan. Audiences would also enjoy impressive songs sung by the charming singer or spellbinding melodies played by the 2 sexy violin players.

In a touching opening video sequence Michael Flatley will lead the audience on the journey from where he began to now, as he passes on his talent and charisma to a brilliant new Lord and cast.

 

This dramatic new version of the original Lord of the Dance reaches a crescendo with a nail biting duel between the new Lord and his dark nemesis Don Dorcha. As always the show finishes with its world famous encore that will leave audiences on their feet time and time again.

 

Good versus evil in the 21st century takes on a whole new meaning.

 

These are Dangerous Games!

The tradition of the world famous Strauss Dynasty was started by Johann Strauss father when he founded his first ‘Strauss Orchestra’ in Vienna in 1825.

Masterpieces like “The Blue Danube” Waltz, “The Vienna Blood” Waltz, “Tritsch-Tratsch” Polka, The Radetzky March and many many more were created by the magnificent Strauss Dynasty.

Current ‘Vienna Strauss Orchestra’ was formed by Edvin Marton in 2009. He was learning the authentic style of Strauss in Vienna Music Academy and realized his dream to pay tribute to Strauss Dynasty.

The Orchestra ranges in size from 17 to 40 musicians, depending on the venue, and plays pieces by Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Upcoming events in the schedule of VSO: tours in China, Russia, Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic and USA.

Edvin Marton, who is the composer of the Olympic- and World-Champion figure skater, Evgeny Plushenko, won Emmy-Award in 2006 and won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008, plays the
original Antonius Stradivarius violin from 1697. He performed with celebrities like Seal, Zucchero, Lou Brega or Supertramp, jumped on stage with Gloria Gaynor, etc.

Founding the current group, Edvin Marton brought not only a beautiful tone but his own energetic and passionate style to the traditional Viennese music. With his contribution, the performance is not only a usual classical concert but a really entertaining show with definitely original sound and instrumentation. In concert with opera singers and principal ballet dancers, the VSO brings the stunning compositions of Strauss and Mozart to life.

ALTAN – THE IRISH EVE IN PRAGUE – 2007

A celebration of the 10 years of Irish dance in CR took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Prague in April 25, 2007 – with the best local bands and dance groups Shannon, Rinceoirí and Coiscéim and famous Irish folk band Altan.

Altan are one of Ireland’s musical treasures. Since coming together in Donegal as young musicians 20 years ago they have developed a music typified by hard driving, rhythmical jigs and reels combined with the heart wrenching beauty of traditional songs sung in Gaelic and English that has conquered audiences all around the world. Altan’s music is defined by the twin fiddles of Mairead Ni
Mhaonaigh and Ciaran Tourish and counter pointed by the fluid and inventive accordion playing of Dermot Byrne. Guitar and bouzouki provide the rock solid rhythm section that underpins the music. Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh is also the bands vocalist.

The band gave a guest performance on studio recordings of number of great musicians such as for example Dolly Parton, Enya, Alison Krauss, The Chieftains, Tim O’Brien, Paul Brady, Donal Lunny, Soul Flower Union, Luka Bloom, Maura O’Connell, Mary Black, Yasukatsu Oshima.

Local Ground is Altan’s 10th studio album in the 20 years since they first came together as a band. Their musical friendships were forged and proven in innumerable kitchen and pub sessions in Ireland. Their albums routinely top folk and world music charts and they still remain at the cutting edge of Irish music. Few bands can manage to retain the energy and enthusiasm that originally shaped and propelled their music after twenty years together. Altan can. Their live shows continue to convey a vivacious dynamism that is firmly rooted in a pride and respect for a tradition they love and are proud to represent. This respect for their own roots is reflected in the title and content of their new album-Local Ground.
