I have seen the video of Lord of the Dance, and it was the opinion of
the four of us watching it that was better than Riverdance. It has
more of a story (West Side Story springs to mind). The only downsides
are the overuse of slow motion shots of dancers floating through the
air and Michael Flatley's repeated mistaken impression that all of the
audience's applause was directed at him.
