Good, evil, love, lust and power are all present in this dance production that grabs and holds the audience's attention throughout the show. Everyone who experiences this unique show marvels at the amount of skill it takes to dance frenetically in unison with other dancers. The opening act begins with "Cry of the Celts." A female guard is sleeping near a little girl dressed in gold. This "little spirit" plays the show's theme song with a tin whistle, dusts the guards with magical powder and then leaves with a mysterious troop of masked figures. The action continues with many scenes that depict the girl in opposition to the temptress and the Lord of the Dance who is fighting for right and honor.
