“Lord of the Dance Created by Michael Flatley” will perform at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College on Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, April 12, at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and on Saturday, April 13, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Generations of audiences, more than 60 million people from 68 countries, have seen “Lord of the Dance,” created by Michael Flatley, the world’s highest grossing Irish dance show.

Presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, “Lord of the Dance” returns to visit 54 cities in North America, having kicked off its tour in January in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Creator and Artistic Director Michael Flatley, who added fresh costumes, a visually stimulating set featuring an LED wall and revised lighting and set designs this year, still oversees all aspects of the production.

“We welcome this classic show to Three Stages,” noted Three Stages Executive Director Dave Pier. “It is, indeed, a ‘showpiece extravaganza.’”

“Lord of the Dance” is a classic tale of good versus evil based on mythical Irish folklore that brings a romantic and passionate love story to stage. 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,” said Flatley. “Fans can expect 21 scenes of precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful wardrobes and state-of-the-art staging and lighting.”

Along with Dance Director Marie Duffy-Pask, Flatley handpicked the cast of more than 40 dancers; each has achieved individual recognition as a national or worldwide dance champion. He conceptualized and staged the show in a mere 16 weeks but also paid particular attention to the costumes, lighting and staging which are cinematic in scope.

“Irish dance lovers and music fans alike will experience the engaging, rhythmic adventures that has helped catapult Celtic dance mania and Irish dancing into the global spotlight,” said Flatley.

MagicSpace Entertainment is headed by Lee D. Marshall, Joe Marsh, John Ballard, Steve Boulay and Bruce Granath and has been producing and presenting national tours, Broadway shows and concerts worldwide for over 30 years.

Based in Las Vegas, Global Entertainment Group, Inc. has been part of the extraordinary worldwide success of “Lord of the Dance” since 1998.

Marshall, CEO of MagicSpace Entertainment said, “These championship dancers have captivated a new generation of fans and manage the impossible every night. Their collective spirit and energy takes the audience to a time and place that is as imaginative as it is inviting.”

Tickets are $39 to $59 with premium tickets available for $69. There is a 10 percent discount on Thursday evening and Friday afternoon.

Tickets are available online at threestages.net or from the Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.

Three Stages is located at 10 College Parkway in Folsom.
