Riverdance – The 20th Anniversary World Tour is composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty and directed by John McColgan.

Riverdance is an innovative and exciting blend of dance, music, and song. Drawing on Irish traditions, the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music into the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. The show has set design by Robert Ballagh, lighting design by John Comiskey, costume design by Joan Bergin, and sound design by Michael O’Gorman.

Riverdance began its journey as the interval act during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven minute dance piece was then developed into a full-length show by Doherty, composer Bill Whelan and director John McColgan. With its fusion of Irish and international music and dance, the show broke box office records during its world premiere in Dublin in 1995. A hugely successful world tour started in New York in March 1996. Since its inception, Riverdance has packed theaters across the globe.
