Lord of the Dance 2011.
on 20 February 2017
Lord of the Dance 2011 is a make-over of the original from 1998.
The bulk of the show retains the same performances but with new dancers. Although, I was pleased to see Bernadette Flynn stayed with this production, as she shows real passion in her performances. Gillian Norris was replaced by Ciara Sexton as Morrighan and our lovely Anne Buckley aka The Celtic Goddess was replaced too, a real shame as Anne's voice is just pure warmth - you should hear it on her solo album ;-)
New graphics and artwork are amazing, especially with the UFO at the end.
Main show is 91 minutes long, with Michael giving a 7 minute introduction at the beginning followed by an edited show. Remainder of the show is part of the bonus features, as "Deleted Scenes".
Why the editor felt it necessary to cut the show to pieces, I do not know. Especially cutting out the Encore and Siamsa. Wasn't too bothered about the solo vocal performances, as in my opinion, no one is as good as Anne Buckley aka The Celtic Goddess.
Overall, I really enjoyed it and the sound through my 5:1 Cinema System is brilliant. You can really feel the bass.
Definitely worth purchasing, whether this is your first DVD or you have them all, like I do.
