Riverdance

Riverdance 
Gaitey Theatre
Tuesday 11 June to Sunday 15 September 2019
Doors open at 19.30hrs

Riverdance returns to the historical Gaiety Theatre in the heart of Dublin City for the summer season. Riverdance burst onto the world stage 25 years ago, on the 30th April 1994, as part of the Eurovision Song Contest. The response from the thousands of people witnessing it in person at the Point Depot and the international audience watching on TV, was extraordinary. This 7-minute routine was to change the face of Irish dance forever. A visit to Dublin is not complete without experiencing the energy and the spectacle of Riverdance in its home-town, back where it all began

Gaiety Theatre

For 142 years The Gaiety Theatre has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, drama, revues, comedy, concerts, dance, festivals and pantomime. Amid the laughter and tears, through times of war and times of affluence, The Grand Old Lady of South King Street has remained a vital and ever changing expression of Irish culture and Irish society. Long home to the familiar faces of Maureen Potter, Niall Toibin, John B. Keane, Anna Manahan, Des Keogh and Rosaleen Linehan, whose bronze handprints, are set into the pavement in front the theatre, together with those of Luciano Pavarotti and Brian Friel, are testament to the longstanding association these great artists have had with Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.
