Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show Now Streaming for Free

Worldwide sensation Riverdance is celebrating 25 years from the first time the group's first show premiered at The Point Theatre in Dublin, with the full performance of their new tour now streaming online for free.

The group's composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his unforgettable original music with producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan completely reimagining the production.

Here's how to stream Riverdance: the 25th anniversary now:



The 25th-anniversary production features new, innovative lighting, projection, and stage designs with new costume designs by Joan Bergin. It opened in Radio City Music Hall in March 2020, and is now touring the world.

The production is currently touring the world and is now available to stream for free all month. A direct link to the stream has been added to our free musicals and plays list.

Riverdance is a theatrical show consisting mainly of traditional Irish music and dance. The group originated as an interval performance act during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, and shortly expanded into a full stage show shortly after.

Since 1995, the show has toured more than 600 venues worldwide and was seen by over 30 million people, making it one of the most successful dance productions in the world.



In her review for DC Theater Arts, Terry Byrne said: "It’s not nationalistic pageantry in the vein of, say, Shen Yun from China. But Riverdance will course through your veins, no matter how much Irish blood you possess, transport you to the Emerald Isle, and remind you there are really only two kinds of people in the world: the Irish, and those who wish they were."

For the Chicago Tribune, Chris Jones said of the 25th-anniversary production: "The “Riverdance” you remember, superbly and joyously performed. I found myself musing at how this Irish form communicates in performance; there is something, I think, about the stillness of half the body that seems to create an optical illusion of emotional communication. Dancers can’t be subsumed in whole-body choreography. They are always there. Smiling for you. The biggest difference from the money-spinning peak years is the deeper commitment to ensemble. The show’s spirit feels more egalitarian these days, which only expands the warm, populist glow."
