For centuries, the music of Ireland has captured the hearts and imagination of not only Irish natives, but countless people around the globe with its mystical sound and enchanting melodies.
The Magic of Ireland captures the romance and mysticism of the Emerald Isle through an evening of traditional music, song and dance.
The sounds heard through the years at harvest celebrations and family get-togethers, in kitchen parties and at local taverns, are as much a part of Ireland’s culture as are the legends of leprechauns and other magical faerie folk.
This show brings to the stage traditional Irish and Celtic music in an evening filled with fast and graceful dance steps, authentic music and enchanting songs, enhanced with traditional Irish and Celtic instruments.
This production is comprised of a young and talented group of dancers and musicians dedicated to re-creating the ambiance, moods and emotions associated with this Irish and Celtic music.
The troupe’s energy, enthusiasm and precision have drawn praise from audiences across North America and in Europe.
One reviewer commented on how the energy of the performers seemed to be driven by the audience participation, which “grew as the evening progressed.”
The Magic of Ireland is unique because every sound you hear is live. Every note, every lyric, every tap is performed live and presented without the use of recorded elements to fill out the sound. Since this is the case, each performance is different from the next.
The most exciting thing about the show is the spontaneity the performers bring to the stage.
The Magic of Ireland truly reflects the Celtic spirit in an evening filled with traditional Irish dance, music and song enhanced by costumes, lighting and sound and brought to life by a group of dedicated talented dancers, singers and musicians.
The stage at Mount Elizabeth Theatre will come alive with the Magic of Ireland Tuesday, April 25 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available at Book Masters/The Source and at the door.
