GrandWest is gearing up to host the exuberant Michael Flatley when he ventures to Cape Town this month to perform for his local fans for the first time. Based on the reviews of Flatley’s tour to Johannesburg in 2015, GrandWest expects the spectacular new staging of Flatley’s traditional show, ‘Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games’, to be a sellout success. The production will be staged at the Grand Arena from August 8 to 13.
“We are thrilled to be part of bringing Michael Flatley to his Cape Town fans for the first time. This is a not to be missed audiovisual treat,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest.
Although Flatley may not have performed live in Cape Town, he is globally known for his innovative choreography and performance at the ‘1994 Eurovision’, as well as his hit shows ‘Lord of the Dance’, ‘Feet of Flames’ and ‘Celtic Tiger’.
With all the precision and thrills of the original, ‘Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games’ boasts new staging, “dazzling costumes and breathtaking choreography”. The show also features cutting edge technology including a giant flat screen that spans the width of the stage, special effects lighting, dancing robots and world champion acrobats.
With some of the world’s most outstanding young performers, directed by Flatley and new music by composer Gerard Fahy, this latest iteration combines “the best of tradition with all the excitement of new music and dance.”
