Editorial Reviews

December 2009, Taipei Arena, Taiwan. A sell out crowd waits in anticipation... history is about to be made. Michael Flatley returns to the stage with his sensational show Feet of Flames. With over 100 performers, Feet of Flames is one of the largest dance shows ever staged - led by the greatest of them all, Michael Flatley. Once again, Michael Flatley delivers a dance extravaganza with amazing music, stunning costumes, sensational sets and the greatest Irish dancing the world has ever seen. Captured for the first time in High Definition, this is a dance spectacular not to be missed with a finale that will leave you breathless. Truly amazing.

I have been a fan of Michael Flately ever since he came tapping into living rooms around the world as a member of Riverdance. I watched in awe when Lord of the Dance came out and again when FoF came out when it was recorded at Hyde Park. I was excited when I heard on the MFer's Facebook page that FoF Taiwan was going to be released on DVD. I bought it and here's my review:

First of all, this isn't like the FoF at Hyde Park. Several numbers are missing, most notably the first song that Erin the Goddess sings called "Marble Halls" as well as Siamsa (Dance Above the Rainbow) at the beginning of the film. The monks routine (also called High Priests according to the chapter title card for the FoF DVD) is also gone, but the soundtrack for Hell's Kitchen later on in the movie still has them chanting in the background, but they aren't there. The band number and "Whistling Wind" (MF's flute solo) towards the ending of the second act of FoF Hyde Park is gone and for some strange reason, the gasp Gillian Norris did in the original LOTD when she's dancing with the MFer is still in the soundtrack for the latter shows, even though MF only pulled Gillian's hair in the original LOTD. Listen for the gasp when MF and Morrighan are dancing together during Stolen Kiss.

Michael Flately is awesome when he dances. There is no other word I can think of to describe him. He's over 50 years old by this time and still dances like he did twelve years ago when FoF Hyde Park was released. The man can dance. I was excited to see him back dancing in the title role and to see leading lady Bernadette Flynn-O'Kane back dancing as the Irish coleen.

When word came along in 2009 that Michael Flatley was going to take the stage for the first time since his Celtic Tiger tour, I was ecstatic! The performance, titled Feet of Flames (FOF), took place in Taiwan in December of 2009. This dvd is that show. I am a huge fan of Flatley. The guy has inspired me beyond belief, but this disc does anything but that. First off, this is just Lord of the Dance on steroids. Granted, LOTD is an incredible show, but there is nothing new here. What's confusing is the fact that there are two Feet of Flames shows that Flately has put on. The original (also available on dvd), was his retirement from the show...a one-off performance combining both his touring LOTD troupes from 1998. It was and still is the best Irish dance dvd out there. Then there was the touring FOF which had an Egyptian flare to it. It was entertaining and somewhat fresh, but still contained a lot of the LOTD numbers, though this version has never been released in its entirety on disc (only a few numbers seen on Michael Flatley Gold).

I was hoping his Taiwan performance was the latter, providing a hint of Cleopatra. Unfortunately, it was Lord of the Dance all over. Sure it can still be entertaining to watch and doesn't have the hurried cut-cut-cut editing that the original LOTD dvd had. This new dvd also has some photography that makes it feel live, though I don't understand how it's billed as high definition. It's a dvd. It is impossible for it to be high definition. Why didn't they release this on Blu-ray so that claim would hold true??

In the end, Flatley doesn't have the energizing pinache that he once so eloquently delivered on stage with striking vibrance.

Have just watched Feet of Flames in Taiwan on dvd and found it was so awsome that I felt compelled to comment about it. The hairs on the back of my neck were tingling all the way through. The pictures are so clear, you really feel you are there. I can't wait to watch it again. I recommend this to everyone. Keep dancing!
