Rhythm In The Night: The Irish Dance Spectacular in OP

Experience “Rhythm in the Night: The Irish Dance Spectacular,” as it comes to the Thrasher-Horne Center this Spring for 'The Celebration Tour'!  One of the fastest growing Irish dance shows in the country, it is now on its fourth consecutive U.S. tour and garnering raves from critics and audiences alike.  The world-renowned Irish dance troupe performs lighting fast hard shoe rhythms and graceful soft shoe jigs to an orchestral soundtrack, while lighting ignites the stage into an explosive display of dance and music. Strength, agility and precision formulate the fast-paced and breathtaking experience on stage as the cast performs to the heart-pounding and fluid symphonic music that has enthralled audiences all across North America!

This 110-minute show re-imagines traditional Irish dance to take the audience on an exciting journey of a fallen hero and his rise to redemption.  Led by former Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance lead dancer Justin Boros, the accomplished cast featuring 20 of the world’s most skilled Irish dancers and musicians brings the inspiring story of love and salvation to life against a backdrop of ancient ruins that transports the audience to another time and place, where the imagination unfolds.

About the Plot: Darkness has fallen across the land.  Evil has taken the unsuspecting kingdom by surprise. Deception now reigns and temptation has rivaled the strongest of wills. The evil sorceress Azura has trapped the legendary hero Balor under her spell to command her legion of relentless henchmen. Unable to free himself, hope remains lost for all those in the kingdom…until now.

In a final attempt to rescue their leader, the people have called upon Balor's loving companion Aisling along with his younger brother Solas and their knights to release Balor from Azura's control and restore peace to the divided kingdom. As the storm rolls in and the lightning crashes, will redemption rise from the shadows or will evil prevail in the legend that has come to be known as “Rhythm in the Night”.
