Lord of the Dance returned to Bucharest for two fiery shows

Thousands of spectators could watch and applaud the two performances held Friday by the students of Michael Flatley – Lord Of The Dance, a show that is called “A wonder of modern world.” When lights went off, a fairy-tale atmosphere descended in the hall, which turned to nightmare when Don Dorcha – The Dark Lord came on stage, alongside his army; a nightmare which in turn was transformed into a wonderful dream, as The Lord Of The Dance succeeded in defeating the evil.
The nearly 40 dancers staged an explosive show, enjoyed by a numerous public. The music of Ronan Hardiman was merged with several explosive moments of rock, which increased the attractiveness of the performance in the eyes of the public.
The show was split in two acts. The first was a mix of similar dancing moments, standard. Applauses thundered when the young dancers juggled with the partition, alternating elements of contemporary dance, movements of rhythmic gymnastics and ballet. The character that produced most impact was ‘The Little Spirit’. Dances alternated with moments when a singer with a voice of soprano or a duo of violinist girls ‘Strings of Fire’ played tunes belonging to Irish folklore. The second act was more theatrically substantiated and the story was better shaped.
In the public one could also notice Stefan Orheanu, the child who reached the semi-finals of the Romanian equivalent to ‘Dancing with the stars’ (‘Dansez Pentru Tine’) with his step dance inspired from that of his idol, Michael Flatley. He quietly sat in the public during the show and, when the hall was almost empty, he went on stage and impressed the Irish performers with a dance moment of his own. The dancers applauded him, encouraged him and told him what a talent he is, wishing him luck in the international contests he is due to attend.
The two ‘LORD OF THE DANCE’ shows hosted by Sala Palatului in Bucharest were organised by Project Events.
