"Celtic Nights: The Emigrants Bridge," January 23

 

The Pepperdine Center for the Arts presents "Celtic Nights: The Emigrants Bridge," the dynamic story of Irish emigrants told through the power and majesty of music and the hypnotic fury of dancing feet, at Smothers Theatre in Malibu at 8 p.m., Thursday, January 23.

From the creators of Gaelforce Dance, the "unmissable two-hour spectacular [that] has brought audiences to their feet all around the world" (The Guardian, England), comes a brand-new show in celebration of song, direct from Ireland.

In this glittering production, six of Ireland's most prominent vocal talents are complemented by six of its most accomplished step-dancers, creating an exhilarating picture of a proud people who dared to dream big and carve out a home in the New World.

"Celtic Nights" expertly weaves together the lilting melodies and plaintive lyrics of the rich Celtic heritage to tell the story of a people. In this stirring tale of the Celtic experience, the audience is invited to travel along on a journey of hope, transported in time through traditional ballads and vivid choreography.

Tickets, priced at $20, $36, and $40 for the public and $10 for full-time Pepperdine students, are available now by calling (310) 506-4522. Tickets are also available at http://arts.pepperdine.edu/. For more information:gfdpromotions.com/celticnights.php.
