Celtic Illusion – Wed, Apr 6, 2022, 7 – 9 pm
Fusing contemporary Irish Dance with magic and grand illusions, Celtic Illusion features a cast of champion and internationally-acclaimed dancers, including performers from both Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. Displaying some of the fastest taps in the world, the dancers’ thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison. Celtic Illusion is led by Australia’s Anthony Street, the first Australian to perform leading roles in Michael Flatley’s widely-acclaimed Lord of the Dance, including the very role that Michael Flatley originally performed himself. Since its premiere in 2011, Celtic Illusion has played to sold-out audiences all across Australia and recently completely sold out a tour in Canada. Celtic Illusion features a new soundtrack composed by a team including Angela Little (co-composer of Baz Luhrman’s film Australia), Steve Skinner (arranger and producer for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, and the Broadway musical Rent), and Michael Londra (Emmy® nominated singer and producer).

The album received high praise from around the world and throughout the ‘big world crazy time’ she kept her spirits up and continued to win hearts with her passionate and joy-filled music. You won’t want to miss a highly entertaining evening with Laila, she’s a national treasure!”
