This international hit features a cast of more than 40 extraordinarily gifted dancers and musicians, and 90 minutes of dazzling physical performances and eloquence. It has been called “brilliant,” “captivating” and “sexy.”

“We’re delighted that this international phenomenon has proven to be an outstanding success at New York-New York for the last four years,” said Felix Rappaport, president and chief operating officer of the Strip resort. “The extension of the show through July 28 will give fans a chance to see ”˜Lord of the Dance’ once more and people who have never seen the show can experience the excitement for the first time.”
