Celtic Illusion, a modern Irish dance and magic show, is beginning a North American tour in 2022 and stopping in Prince George.
The stage show is created by, choreographed by and stars Anthony Street from Lord of the Dance.
The show fuses contemporary Irish dance with magic and grand illusions and features a cast of champion and internationally acclaimed dances, including performers from both Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
Displaying some of the fastest taps in the world, the dancers’ rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison.
Street is also the the first Australian to perform leading roles in Michael Flatley’s widely-acclaimed Lord of the Dance, including the very role that Michael Flatley originally performed himself.
“Before I was a dancer, my great passion was magic and illusion, but when I worked with Lord of the Dance for four years beginning when I was 20, magic got pushed to the side,” said Street.
“When I decided to create this show in Australia, it dawned on me that I should combine my two passions to give audiences a new sensory experience.”
Since its premier in 2011, Celtic Illusion has played to sold-out audiences all across Australia and recently completely sold out a tour in Canada.
Celtic Illusion comes to CN Centre for one night only on Saturday, April 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 4, 10 a.m. at ticketsnorth.ca.
