Storm is a turbulent, raucous battle between the darkness of gypsies and the resolution of the settlers, both fighting for the same piece of land. The gypsies have inhabited the land for generations and the settlers are looking to put down roots and build their community. Irish culture and tradition permeate throughout the stage. The power behind Sharon Browne and Phil Coulter's production comes from their creative and thematic juxtapositions of light and dark, youth and life experiences, as well as energetic ensemble numbers and heartfelt solo showcases. The massive set spans 130 feet in length and 40 feet in depth, and is comprised of live trees, gypsy caravans, settler's huts, and even a river. In the tradition of Celtic Thunder's previous releases, Storm's show-stopping musical performances include the bold and daring "Stand And Deliver", the comedic and youthful "Look At Me", and a wonderfully new a cappella arrangement of the beloved classic "Lagan Love"Since the airing of their first Public Television special in 2008, Celtic Thunder consistently remains one of the most popular musical acts for the network. Storm was filmed alongside It's Entertainment at the Toronto International Centre Hall 5 in Toronto, Ontario. Their 60-minute DVD was shot in high definition with a 15-camera multi directional shoot and exceptionally high production values.
