Michael Flatley’s spectacular Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games returns to Milton Keynes Theatre in April hot on the heels of a successful world tour, celebrating 20 years of Lord of the Dance.

With all the thrills of the original, Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games features new staging, new costumes and choreography, world champion acrobats, special effects and dancing robots.

The spectacle will feature 40 of the world’s most outstanding young performers directed by Flatley, with new music by composer Gerard Fahy.

Fans will also be able to enjoy the choreographer’s protégés James Keegan, Fergal Keaney and Matt Smith in the role of the Lord.

Michael Flatley said: “Our fans in the UK have been incredibly loyal for the last 20 years and many of my talented dancers hail from diverse parts of the country.

“We have a world-class cast, many of whom will be performing in their home cities and I am delighted to be able to showcase their remarkable talent.”

The show has since gone on to enjoy hugely successful runs in the West End, Broadway, the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

The original Lord of the Dance show premiered at the London Coliseum and, in 2014, Michael Flatley rejuventated the show making it even more thrilling and daring.

The new Michael Flatley Dance Academy will be working in conjunction with the show to bring pop-up sessions to dance enthusiasts throughout the tour.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games plays at Milton Keynes Theatre from April 4–9.
