Murphy’s Celtic Legacy is a new and original international Irish Dance show created by Chris Hannon, former principle dancer for Lord of the Dance. The battle of styles and clash of colours premiered to sold-out audiences in the United Kingdom then wowed audiences in the Middle East before making its Canadian debut. An original tale developed by Hannon drawn from Irish folklore—a tale of Kings and Queens, rebels and magic; epic battles between good and evil. This performance tells the story of the Murphy clan, who flee the corrupt tyrants of their native Eire in search of a better future. Featuring dancers and musicians from Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Woman, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy is the next generation Irish dance spectacular.
“Some of the world’s quickest; most expressive legs set out to fascinate a large audience. In percussive dance shoes, they pounded the stage with sizzling rhythms.”
