Boston audiences are giving Riverdance a final last hurrah this weekend, as the hit revue of Irish dancing and music makes its final Boston appearance at the Boston Opera House on Sunday, April 15, 2012.
On opening night Friday, the troupe received numerous encores and standing ovations, recognizing that Riverdance is finalizing its American performances with this current tour.
The show, which has been seen live by over 22 million people, has always been a favorite of the Irish community in Boston and the New England region.
In fact, several local dancers and musicians have starred in Riverdance from the area, including World Champion Irish dancers Liam Harney from Walpole and Scott Doherty from Lawrence, and All Ireland accordion play Sean Gannon from Dorchester.
The final two performances of Riverdance take place on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. For ticket information click here.
