GET YOUR CELTIC ON @ SOPAC!! TWO UPCOMING SHOWS CELEBRATE IRISH TRADITIONS
MON 11/04 + TUE 11/05 at 7:30PM – IRELAND: THE SHOW
Direct from Ireland, Ireland: The Show is an innovative and exciting new Celtic production celebrating the very best of Irish heritage and culture—showcased by a cast of world champion Irish Dancers, Musicians and Singers. The show kicks off with a whirlwind of energy, as the musicians create lively tunes, pushing the dancers to new levels of artistic expression, and transporting old traditions from the Irish fireside to the international stage. The expressive language of dance ranges from a gliding shimmer of subtle soft shoe choreography to pounding dramatic hard shoe steps. The execution of seemingly effortless high kicks is married perfectly with modern polish, Irish charm and dazzling Vegas-style Celtic costumes. As the old Irish proverb relates, “There are no Strangers here, only friends you haven’t met.”
THU 12/05 at 7:30PM – CHERISH THE LADIES: A CELTIC CHRISTMAS
Taking their name from a traditional Irish jig, Cherish The Ladies share timeless Irish traditions with audiences worldwide. The Ladies perform classic Christmas carols, in their signature arrangements highlighting unique Celtic instrumentation, beautiful harmonies and spectacular step-dancing.
