Editorial Reviews

The international smash-hit, Lord of the Dance, is back with an all-new electrifying show. Filmed LIVE in Dublin and London during the sold out 2011 European Tour, experience the magic, excitement and passion like never before.

Starring show creator and Irish dance pioneer Michael Flatley (returning to Lord of The Dance for the first time in 13 years); the breathtaking performance comprises a spectacular new set design, state-of-the-art lighting, special effects and costumes that will captivate audiences both young and old.

Featuring unprecedented access to Flatley’s performance and exclusive behind the scenes footage, you’ll never be closer to the action than this! Don’t miss out on the performance film event of the year!

Extras include a "Behind the Scenes Feature" and four additional songs and dances from the show not seen in movie theaters!

First performed in 1996, Lord of the Dance is one of the most successful, electrifying and enduring performance brands of all time. Created by the pioneering star of Riverdance, Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance is inspired by ancient Irish folklore and features the ‘Lord of the Dance’ battling against an evil force for control of ‘Planet Ireland’. Its universal themes of good versus evil and love triumphing over all ensure it is perfect viewing for the whole family, young and old!

From the moment the lights go down to the last encore, audiences are spellbound by a masterfully orchestrated combination of precision dancing, state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.

To start off M.F. is up to his high standard of dance. He is totally rocking it once again! I have the original Lord of The Dance on VHS and the Feet of Flames. Sorry but Feet of Flames is the best out of the three it gets a 5 star! This newest production would have been awesome to watch if it wasn't for some of the camera angles and way too many cut a-ways at very integral moments in the dances. The slow motion shots are really annoying. It also seems to me that this is not just one show that was shot. If you watch closely you will see Bernadette Flynn on the stage left then all of sudden she is stage right before coming to dance in the middle. Also on the "Planet Ireland" performance she seems to be missing in some shots then back again. As I was watching it all the way to the end I was wondering where the "Siamsa" number was. I found out it is a DELETED SCENE! Why?! It is one of my favorite parts. For those who have never seen one of the Lord of the Dance productions it is a really good start. I encourage though to get the older ones too. Guess I have been spoiled with the previous ones.

It's impossible to review this video without referencing the original production of 20 years ago. I have watched that video many times, and have seen it live three times (once with Flatley, twice without); needless to say, I'm a fan. There is no doubt that the audio and video on this disk are both spectacular. And Michael Flatley certainly still has "the chops" to pull off the dancing; in fact virtually the entire company is flawless. Then why only four stars? The new production. There is soo much flash from the lighting effects, it's sometimes difficult to see the dancing. The costumes are also a bit strange (especially for the men) and, as with the lighting, distract from the dancing. Also, three scenes were cut from the main production (the two soprano solos and the "Siamsa" dance routine). These ARE included in a "deleated scenes" section, but I don't know why they were cut in the first place. Bottom line: I'm sure that I will watch this many times in the future - but if they ever release a remastered Blu-ray version of the original, it will be my hands-down favorite.

I am speechless (and breathless) after watching the latest reincarnation of The Lord of the Dance. Flatley is no spring chicken but is a cardiologist's dream in form and stamina. He dances with the vigor and precision of a 20 year old. The production is vibrant, colorful and endlessly inventive as it evolves from scene to scene. The direction of the film version seen here, the technical excellence visible throughout, the perfection of the dance and dancers; sorry to gush but as a long time fan of Flatley, I never thought I'd see the day when he would out-do himself. Dancers, actors, musicians, techies, rabid dance and theatre fans --- order this today. You won't regret it. What a glorious experience!

This dance show has a storyline that will occasionally have you going, "What the -- ?" If you go in hoping for Riverdance Part 2, well, you kinda get that but under unusual circumstances. Apparently, the Lord of the Dance (Michael Flatley, who even wears a belt that says he is) is out to conquer the evil forces that descend upon Planet Ireland. No, don't ask.

The evil is represented by a masked leader ans his dozen soldiers dressed in something between Rollerball outfits and riot gear uniforms. They may try to appear terrifying, but it is hard to fear these stormtroopers when they do an Irish jig. Often when they are on stage, the background projection shows a devil's head or a death skull. It is a bizarre show concept for family viewing.

I am not saying the show is not without its entertainment. Michael Flatley is past his prime, but he is still an exceptional dancer. That is, when he isn't trying to milk applause from the audience. The rest of the cast are very good, including almost twenty attractive female dancers who look exceptionally sexy in 3D.

(By the way, if you are a guy whose girlfriend is making you watch this video, practice now to keep a non-excited look when you get to 33:47; otherwise, you will suddenly sit up and cry out, "Yes!! Thank you, Michael Flatley!!")

The 3D runs the gamut from very good to extraordinary (at one point, you can count the bangles on a jester's hat). The black areas of the screen never achieve a respectable full darkness, but there is enough good 3D to make up for that. (This stage show was filmed in high def 3D cameras.)

Audio is good, not exceptional.

Though the extras are minimal (a "making of"), I give this extra points because there are four deleted scenes from the film, all in 3D.

Id never really seen a full lords of the dance show and had only seen it being performed at gala evenings etc so i wondered how they were going to pad out a whole show. Wonder no more as the show was spellbinding from start to finish with excellent 3D and a scorchingly clear 7.1 audio soundtrack, i will watch this again and again as it gives goosebumps every time, absolute perfection!

I have two ancient VHS tapes of the original "Riverdance" (1995, starring Michael Flatley) and the original "Lord of the Dance" (1996). They've been played so many times that I needed to replace them with DVD's. To my surprise, I can't find a DVD of "Riverdance" and the original "Lord of the Dance" is out of print, so only used copies are reasonably priced.

So I decided to give "Michael Flatley Returns as Lord of the Dance" a try. Filmed live in Dublin in 2011, this is Michael Flatly's first return to the stage as lead dancer in over a decade. I was sceptical. In 2011, Flatley was 53 years old! I know tap dancers who are amazing athletes in their 60's, but "Lord of the Dance" is very highpowered - would Flatley fall flat?

I am so pleased to say that he is still one incredible and amazing dancer. If you have the original from 1996 nearly memorized, you will realize that his arm movements are not as quick as they used to be. But his feet - his feet are still gold (even if his high-octane dance sets are a little shorter).

This show is 95 minutes of wonderful dancing (plus two more dances in the bonus extras). Some of the dances are new, some are favorites, generally updated. There are 16 scenes in the main movie, two being instrumental (those wonderful fiddles!). I did not realize that Flatley is a world-rated flautist who's won national competitions. He plays the flute in one of the instrumental numbers.

As expected, the "Lord of the Dance" number remains awesome. It and the final "Planet Island" dance have the set where the dancers are all in a line and do a sort of "wave", back and forth. If the first time you saw that wave your heart didn't just leap for the joy of it, you can't be human!
