Irish Dance meets Christmas at Molloy holiday event

Carol of the King, The Irish Dance Christmas Spectacular, will be performed at the Madison Theatre at Molloy College on Friday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

Led by former lead dancer from Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance and founder of Two Step Productions, Justin Boros, the production brings Irish dance and Christmas together for the first time to turn an age-old tradition into an exciting Irish dance Christmas spectacular that the entire family will enjoy.

Winter has fallen across the land. King Solomon and his kingdom prepare for the Christmas season celebration. While cold winds caress the landscape, one gust brought an unearthly chill not felt before. The dark sorceress Circe and her ghostly legion known as The Frost are upon the land. She has trapped the legendary King Solomon under her spell in an attempt to steal the throne and expel Christmas once and for all. Unable to free himself and carry forth the holiday spirit, hope remains lost for all those in the kingdom… until now.

In a brave effort to rescue their king and preserve the spirit of the season, the kingdom has called upon Solomon’s loving companion Brighid, his younger brother Aidan and the Guardians to restore harmony to the land. With the frigid forces attempting to break the will of the crown and banish Christmas for eternity, will darkness reign or will victory be seized from Circe’s icy grip in the legend that has come to be known as Carol of the King?

Featuring 20 of the world’s most skilled Irish dancers and musicians, Carol of the King brings an original inspiring Christmas story of love and salvation to life that transports the audience to a mystical time and place of heroes and redemption. The world-renowned Irish dance troupe performs lighting-fast, hard-shoe rhythms and graceful, soft-shoe jigs to an original epic orchestral soundtrack featuring many holiday favorites, while state-of-the-art lighting and Christmas spirit ignite the stage into an explosive display of dance and music.

From Two Step Productions, which also created the smash hit and fastest-growing Irish dance show in the U.S., Rhythm in the Night, The Irish Dance Spectacular, with its strength, agility and fast-paced, breathtaking talent and precision on full display, is sure to enthrall the audience.
