Dance Performance DVD
DP01 Classic Dance Performances DVD - Michael Flatley (Actor), David Mallet (Director), Nick Morris (Director) - The Michael Flatley Collection - Dance Performance DVD - Michael Flatley personifies the very essence of Ireland with every fleeting step he takes. This passionate, dynamic Irish dancer has enchanted millions around the world. The amazing 10th Anniversary collection includes Lord of the Dance, Michael Flatley: Feet of Flames and Michael Flatley: Gold . (5 hours 41 minutes). I ordered Lord of the Dance first, then Feet of Flames and finally Gold. They are phenomenal. If you have enjoyed any of Flatleys work, I recommend buying the Collection. Be sure to watch them in this order so you can appreciate the production innovations. I notice that some reviewers had audio and other problems. If there were any, I did not notice them for I thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular performances. I have played each DVD several times over and have even ordered some for gifts. Gold features an interview with the artist that is awesome and inspiring Michael Flatley sits back comfortably and tells about his lifes experiences. Its very informative. He seems very honest and straightforward. He shows clips of how he started out his dancing career with the Chieftains. He tells how Moya Doherty, producer of Riverdance, approached him about doing Irish Tap Dancing during a 7-minute intermission at the 1994 Eurovision. (Michael already had an image in his head about a line of dancers across the stage all doing Irish tap) Well, it came true; the dance was a success and the rest they say is history. That is when his career, officially as a dancer, really started. He became very successful; more so when he left Riverdance. You see different parts of Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames as hes talking about his achievements. He played a flute solo for his mom in Feet of Flames, explaining that A man cannot be macho all the time. He explains about why he chose those exact costumes for the show. He loves a lot of color, as we all know, explaining that eye appeal is what brings a show together. (Some people criticize him about his vegas-style look to his shows) There are new numbers at the end of the video that were filmed in Budapest, I believe. The dances were styled to appeal to the countries taste. (More royal looking--Cleopatra-like eyes on the lead girls; the little spirit was dressed in a jester-like outfit) Different.. I also think the dancers were exceptional; different techniques for different countries makes for no boredom. It showed, they did a great job. If you are a Michael Flatley fan, its a DVD that you wont be sorry buying. Much has been written about this creative talent. I purchased this dvd for my grandson who has been watching riverdance, then Lord of the Dance, and finally Feet of Flames since (and I exagerate not a bit) he was 10 months old. He is now three and has worn out the Feet of Flames dvd. He has imitated all the dance steps and arm motions from the latter movie since he was old enough to walk, and now, at 3 years of age, is getting ready for serious dance lessons. One reviewer commented that he detests Michael Flatley, personally. Never having met the man personally, I havent had the chance to do so. I only know that as an inspiration to my little treasure he is the tops. With all the -- at best worthless and at worst destructive -- media for our children and grandchildren to become entangled in, there is at least one glimmering star to captivate their attention. Need I say that I have enjoyed Feet of Flames with him for more than two years now, and since the original is out of print, this edition will do quite nicely and at a fraction of the cost.
