If you remember the Irish musical Lord of the Dane, you'll want to experience Celtic Illusion, the modern Irish dance and magic stage show, created choreographed, and starring Anthony Street. The show will play at the Merriam Theater on the Kimmel Cultural Campus on May 6 at 8PM. 

Celtic Illusion fuses contempory Irish Dance with grand illusions put together by a cast of champion and internationally acclaimed dancers, including performers from both Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. Displaying some of the fastest taps in the world, the dancers’ thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison. Celtic Illusion is led by Australia’s Anthony Street, the first Australian to perform leading roles in Michael Flatley’s widely-acclaimed Lord of the Dance, including the very role that Michael Flatley originally performed himself.

Celtic Illusion features a new soundtrack composed by a team including Angela Little (co-composer of Baz Luhrman’s film Australia), Steve Skinner (arranger and producer for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent), and Michael Londra (Emmy® nominated singer and producer).

“We are excited to, once again, share this beautiful show with audiences as we embark on our 2022 tour, and it’s just the tonic necessary after the past two years.” said Annerin producer Jeff Parry. “We have been humbled that Celtic Illusion has really connected with people, leading to sold out houses and rapturous standing ovations, and we look forward to coming to a city near you.”
“Before I was a dancer, my great passion was magic and illusion, but when I worked with Lord of the Dance for four years beginning when I was 20, magic got pushed to the side,” said Anthony Street. “When I decided to create this show in Australia, it dawned on me that I should combine my two passions to give audiences a new sensory experience.”
