A DANCE phenomenon is heading for Manchester’s Opera House.

With an incredible two decades of global success since Riverdance first burst into the public’s heart at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1994, it is a chance for Manchester audiences to reconnect with the spectacular dance phenomenon.

Composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance has performed across the UK where it has been experienced by over 2.9 million people in well over 1,000 performances in 18 cities and the show has lost none of its drama and magic.

Producer Moya Doherty said: “The show continues to draw and excite audiences.

“This 20th anniversary tour is a thank-you to our UK audiences and a celebration of what has been an incredible journey.”

The series of dates in 2014 represent a chance for UK Riverdance fans old and new to celebrate an incredible milestone.

Riverdance will be at the Opera House from October 7 to 12.

Tickets are from £29.50 to £48.40 and are available by calling 0844 871 3018 or visiting atgtickets.com/manchester.
