Michael Flatley - Michael Flatley Celtic Tiger - Dance Performance DVD - Celtic Tiger appears to be Michael Flatley's attempt at a concept album--a loose tracing of the Irish through history, from prehistoric times, to pesky run-ins with Vikings and British soldiers, to St. Paddy driving out the snakes, to... the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders? (Who knew so many of them were Irish?) The spectacle of it all is grand and ambitious in the best way of the new Las Vegas shows (O'Siegfried and McRoy?), and Flatley, the genius behind Riverdance and all its toe-tapping offspring, is simply undaunted. By anything. The traditional Irish dance, fiddling, and piping his fans adore are separated by slower segments using Martha Graham-esque modern set pieces, all well performed. But the audience doesn't really come alive unless it's Flatley, bedecked in his finery (one fave: a Gladiator tog to make Russell Crowe envious) and executing his precise, mind-bending choreography. As usual, he's surrounded himself with troupes of the best hoofers on the planet, and the comeliest female fiddlers this side of the Dixie Chicks. One of many highlights: Celtic Fire, just Flatley on flute surrounding by the fiddling femme fatales at a dervish pace. A bonus featurette shows some behind the scenes, mostly in slow-mo, of the work going into mounting the ambitious show in Budapest. Michael Flatley, the internationally acclaimed master of dance returns to the stage to spearhead his powerful new dance spectacular, Celtic Tiger. With incredibly powerful music, unbelievable costumes and breathtaking special effects, Celtic Tiger is an epic masterpiece that fuses the spirit and history of Ireland with dance and music. I was very lucky to see this show twice: first I won a ticket to watch the recording of the DVD in Birmingham and, next thing I knew, I was on a plane to see the Madison Square Garden performance. It's absolutely brilliant and Michael is dancing even better, if that is at all possible. If you happen to know a little about Irish history, it'll help you understand. If you don't, it's pure, first class entertainment. Yes this is a lot different than LOTD was and it was SUPPOSED TO BE... I would have been livid if I had paid 20 bucks for something very similar to LOTD. I was expecting something different and that is what I got. Michael uses different types of dance to tell this story of the history of the Irish. It can be hard to follow at some points if you don't know anything about Irish History (luckily I do) but in my opinion the dancing is wonderful. Yes, the striptease bit was a little unique to say the least but to each their own. Is this as good as LOTD? No. Is it a great show that deserves praise? Absolutely. If you're looking for something along the lines of LOTD, this is not for you. If you are looking for a different Michael Flatley show, by all means buy this and enjoy.
