Lord of the Dance is a spirit lifting magical adventure of sight and sound.
From the moment the lights go down to the last encore, you’ll be spellbound by a masterfully orchestrated combination of precision dancing, state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.
Mathis, one of America’s favorite singers, sits in with the Houston Symphony. Johnny’s smooth style has made him one of only five recording artists to have Top 40 Hits spanning each of the four decades since 1955.
