The Dancing Lord in Melbourne

08 Oct 2015

The Dancing Lord in Melbourne Image

By Kara Bertoncini

What a treat to have the world-famous Michael Flatley’s “Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games” make its way to Melbourne.

Playing for a very short season at The Arts Centre, the show was filled with fast footwork, elegant costumes, spectacular pyrotechnics and the incredible use of LED screen projections.

The troupe of dancers were exceptional in their versatility between soft shoe and hard shoe Irish dancing as they leaped, galloped and buzzed their way around the stage.

As for the structure of the show, well, it seemed to be a combination of a cruise ship style show, a Cirque du Soleil show and a musical. While all these styles are remarkable in their own right, the cohesion just wasn’t there for Lord of the Dance and the storyline fell just a bit under.

A special mention must go to lead male dancer, the lord himself, Morgan Comer. Apart from his tremendous technical dance ability, his charisma and presence on stage are what really brought the show life and substance. He is a standout performer and a true representation of the new era of Michael Flatley.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is currently touring around Australia but be sure to catch it next time it stops in Melbourne.
