This year is special for Riverdance as it celebrates 25 years of success with a unique 25th Anniversary Show.

The team have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection and stage designs with new costume designs.

And for the first time, Riverdance at Expo will include Arabic culture and influences in the show.

Pat Hennessy, Commissioner General of the Ireland Pavilion at Expo noted, Ireland’s theme for Expo 2020 Dubai is putting creativity at the centre of human experience with music, art and design at the heart of this theme. Riverdance is a fitting expression of this innate cultural creativity which has garnered Ireland a global reputation for excellence in the arts.’
