Myself and my auntie had the fabulous opportunity to watch and review Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance Dangerous Games show at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford. With my auntie being disabled we found the disabled parking bays outside the theatre quite confusing to locate, however the theatre staff happily explained directions after a quick phone call.
The Alhambra Is a traditional theatre with a circular auditorium, decorative plasterwork both around the stage and on the walls and ceiling.
Upon arrival to the theatre we were greeted by the staff at the ticket desk who was friendly and directed us to the press ticket stand where two ladies greeted us then handed us our tickets and a programme. A steward showed us which way we needed go to our seats.
Once seated the chairs where comfy with a good amount of legroom and we had a great view of the stage. I have previously watched Lord of the Dance a few years ago, it was my aunties first time. I always enjoyed watching River Dance on television. It’s shame not too see the real Michael Flatley as opposed to only seeing him on a projection screen behind stage, James Keegan (dance master) did a fantastic job leading the dancers as ‘the Lord’.
The actors gave a good contrast between the good versus evil and how the evil seductress Morrighan tries her best to come in-between the Lord of the Dance and his true love Saoirse.
The show consists of tap dancers, ballet, a professional singer and talented musicians.
Half way through the performance there was an interval which was great as it gave us time to stretch our legs and get refreshments.
To conclude my review, I would highly recommend to all to go and see the Lord of the Dance tour, and to repeat an evening consisting of highly talented dancers, vocals and musicians, an overall great show.
Tickets costs from £34 to £45 (booking fees may apply).
Lord of the Dance Dangerous Games is at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford until 12 March 2017. For more information or to book tickets click here or call the box office on 01274 432000.
