BEAVER CREEK — Celtic Nights presents “The Emigrant’s Bridge” at the Vilar Performing Arts Center on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Drawn from the history and folklore of Ireland and her Celtic cousins, Celtic Nights will bring the audience on a musical journey telling the tail of emigration. Incorporating stellar dancing with a riveting history, this group brings the withstanding Irish culture to the stage with purely Celtic music and step.
Six of Ireland’s most accomplished dancers mirror six of its finest voices to present a spell-binding and exhilarating picture of proud people, their passions, and their hopes and dreams. Celtic music unites the hypnotic fury of dancing Irish feet, leaving the theater ringing with the sounds of Celtic sounds old and new.
“Celtic Nights have brought our distinctive and evolving music and dance tradition to the world stage and showcased our tradition in spectacular fashion,” said Enda Kenny, Ireland’s prime minister.
“The Emigrant’s Bridge” is a brand new show that expertly weaves these strands together. The 2 1/2 hour performance effortlessly intertwines beautiful ballads, striking choreography and a compelling storyline to form a vivid link with Celtic heritage. It’s a stirring tale of a people’s struggle to find their place in the world.
