RIVERDANCE had its world premiere at the Point Theatre, Dublin, in February 1995, where it opened to unanimous critical acclaim. Innovative and exciting in its unique blend of dance, music and song, RIVERDANCE draws on Irish traditions and the combined talents of the performers to propel Irish dancing and music to the present day and capture the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. RIVERDANCE, which boasts an international company of 70 performers all performing to the magic of Bill Whelan’s music, now returns to Chicago!
