From the promoters of the hugely successful The Rhythms Of Ireland comes Celtic Illusion.
Following sell-out shows all over Australia, Celtic Illusion, the original dance and magical illusion sensation that has been taking Australian audiences by storm, will tour thirteen New Zealand cities this November.
This phenomenal family-friendly show features electrifying modern Irish Dance with mind-blowing magic and grand illusions, the spectacular stage show will tour New Zealand in November 2016 for a strictly limited time.
With incredible choreography, spellbinding magic, heart-racing music and a sensory experience like no other, audiences will be kept on the edge of their seats and left wanting more.
Showcasing a stellar cast of champion and internationally-acclaimed dancers, including performers from both Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, Celtic Illusion offers some of the fastest taps in the world as the dancers’ thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison.
Celtic Illusion also offers an incredible soundtrack composed by a stellar team, including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s epic film Australia, as well as Steve Skinner who has arranged and produced for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent.
Since its premiere in 2011 the show has performed to sell-out audiences across Australia, with audiences blown away by the combination of scintillating dance and illusion. This show is led by Anthony Street who also serves as Director and Executive Producer. The show is testament to hard work, passion and dreams coming true. Anthony worked in construction by day and Celtic Dancer and Illusionist by night. As a young man Anthony was a keen Football player but secretly did Irish dance classes at the same time.
