Combining the most revered elements of traditional Irish and Celtic music, song and dance within a contemporary setting, Women of Ireland is a full-stage production showcasing the talents of the country’s next generation of rising female artists. The all-female lineup of Irish step dancers, which includes three long-term lead dancers from “Riverdance” and Michael Flatley’s “Lord of the Dance,” is amplified by live instrumentalists performing both classic and modern songs. Special acts include singing sisters Fiona, Naomi and Evangeline O’Neill, fiddle players Niamh Fahy and Niamh Gallagher, aerialist Elena Marina and lead dancer Kelly McDonnell. Created by producer-director-composer Eric Cunningham, Women of Ireland is choreographed by Anthony Fallon, four-time world champion of Irish solo dancing and former principal dancer of “Riverdance.” Admission ranges between $15–65 and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
