Come and meet those dancing (Irish) feet! Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show arrives at Radio City Music Hall tonight, marking the international dance phenomenon's first return to the iconic venue in ten years. Comprised of eight performances, the limited engagement runs through March 15, 2020.

Synopsis: "Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show is Riverdance, as you've never seen it before! A powerful and stirring reinvention of this beloved favorite, celebrated the world over for its Grammy Award-winning score and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and international dance. Immerse yourself in the extraordinary power and grace of its music and dance-beloved by fans of all ages. Fall in love with the magic of Riverdance all over again."

Riverdance rose to fame during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest and went on to be developed into a full-length stage production, composed by Bill Whelan and directed by John McColgan, which broke all box office records with its world premiere engagement in Dublin in 1995. Since then, it has been performed all over the world, including London, New York, and countless cities in Europe, North America, Asia, South Africa, South America, and Oceania. Riverdance's first international tour was launched at Radio City Music Hall in March 1996, making this new production a homecoming of sorts.

Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show is produced by The Madison Square Garden Company, Abhann Productions and the Bowery.

Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show Tickets are available now for performances through March 15, 2020.
