Worcester, MA (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Sixteen years ago, Michael Flatley’s LORD OF THE DANCE launched. Today, it is selling out arenas and theatres as the world’s highest grossing Irish dance show. Generations of audiences, more than 60 million people from 68 countries, have seen LORD OF THE DANCE. Presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, and generously sponsored by Commerce Bank, the tour arrives at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester, MA on Thursday, March 7 at 8pm. Tickets are now on sale to members of The Hanover Theatre before going on sale to the general public on Friday, September 21 at 10am.
A 2012 Valentine’s Day tour launch is merely coincidence, but is fitting since an integral part of the show is a love story between the two main characters. “LORD OF THE DANCE is a classic tale of good versus evil, based on Irish folklore that brings a romantic and passionate love story to life,” says Flatley. The story is based upon mythical Irish folklore as Don Dorcha, Lord of Darkness, challenges the ethereal lord of light, the Lord of the Dance. “Battle lines are drawn, passions ignite and a love story fueled by the dramatic leaps and turns of dancers’ bodies begins to build against a backdrop of Celtic rhythm,” says Flatley. “Fans can expect 21 scenes of precision dancing, dramatic music, new colorful wardrobes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting.”
Ticket prices are $27, $37, $47 and $57 with a 10% discount available for members of The Hanover Theatre, groups of 10 or more, kids, students and WOO Card holders. Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469) or at The Hanover Theatre Box Office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.
