From Golden Globe‐nominated composer Brian Byrne (Heartbeat of Home) comes a majestic new musical score for a brand‐new Irish dance production from Herbert W. Armstrong College and Armstrong Dance. Celtic Throne explores the ancient origins of Irish step dance and celebrates the millennia‐long journey of a music‐and‐dance‐loving people as they migrate from the ancient Near East to Ireland, Scotland, England and the United States. Infused with innovative choreography, dazzling costumes and spectacular lighting and projection, Celtic Throne is Armstrong’s most electrifying, edge‐of‐the‐seat production to date. “Celtic Throne combines Byrne’s powerful, cinematic musical score with hard‐ and soft‐shoe Irish dancing, all set against epic imagery of Ireland, the Scottish Highlands, scenes from the British Empire, and traditional America. This show is a stonking celebration of the British Isles and the United States. It is guaranteed to leave audiences thrilled and inspired,” said codirector Brad Macdonald. “Bring the entire family for an unforgettable experience!”
