The show, from the creators of Gaelforce Dance, has been described as an "unmissable two-hour spectacular (that) has brought audiences to their feet all around the world."

"Celtic Nights" weaves together the lilting melodies and plaintive lyrics of the Celtic heritage -- through traditional ballads and vivid choreography. This show features the finest male and the finest female voices of the Celtic world, showcased against a backdrop of expert dancing and musicianship.

Six of Ireland's most prominent vocal talents are complemented by six of its most accomplished step dancers, creating an exhilarating picture of the power and majesty of music and the hypnotic fury of dancing feet -- all of it telling a story of a vibrant people.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $24 for seniors and $20 for students.
