Riverdance Producer Moya Doherty recently announced that the North American touring production of the show will close in June 2012. As such, this will mark the show’s final performance in Cornwall.

“When we opened Riverdance in New York in March 1996, we never thought for one minute that our show would still be running 15 years later,” said Mrs. Doherty. “Three years ago we embarked on our farewell tour, saying good-bye to every city in North America we have ever played in over the years, and next June 17th in our 16th year this current production of Riverdance will end and  we will say our final goodbye.  It has been a source of immense pride for me as Producer that America took Riverdance to its heart to such an amazing extent and I would like to pay tribute to every dancer, musician, singer and all the crew and staff who served Riverdance so well over the years.”

About Riverdance
An innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song, Riverdance draws on Irish traditions and the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music to the present day capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures.  This extraordinarily unique show features an international company all performing to the magic of Bill Whelan’s music.

To date, Riverdance  has played over 10,000 performances, been seen live by more than 22 million people in over 350 venues throughout 40 countries across 4 continents. They have traveled well over 600,000 miles (or to the moon and back!), played to a worldwide television audience of 2 billion; sold over 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD (certified Platinum in the US) and over 10 million videos making it one of the best-selling entertainment videos in the world!  Riverdance had its world premiere at the Point Theatre, Dublin, in February 1995, where it opened to unanimous critical acclaim.

In a flash, Riverdance became Ireland’s greatest ambassador and the thirst began. Riverdance changed the face of Irish dance and despite its imitators, has remained on top and was voted the #1 Variety/Family Entertainment Show in the US (1998).
