Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts

A National Dance Company of Ireland presentation, this two-hour dance and music extravaganza contains a wealth of talent derived from all areas of Irish life, including three tenors and a seanos dancer. The show is an inspiring epic, reliving the journey of the Irish Celts through history. Using the traditional and modern arts of dance (ballet, modern dance, jazz) and music, this richly costumed show marries the contemporary and the ancient. Combining traditional Irish dance and music with the most up-to-date stage technology, the show is a thousand year old story executed with all the advantages of the modern day stage show.

Moran Theatre - Times Union Center
2/26-3/3/2013
Based on the Academy Award nominated 2000 film of the same title, Billy Elliot is the story of its namesake star, a young boy in a depressed working-class mining town in the North of England. Set during the history-making 1984 miner's strike, the show follows Billy, the youngest child of a blue-collar family that has recently lost its Mum, as he discovers his unlikely and extraordinary gift for ballet. While Billy's father and brother take to the picket lines of the violent and life-changing strike, Billy secretly begins to study the art of dance with the help of a hard-drinking, chain-smoking local dance teacher. But as Billy blossoms and thrives, the world and lives around him continues to wither-and his only escape may be the prestigious Royal Ballet School, a place no working-class boy has ever gone, or been allowed to go to, before.
