show arrived in Scottsdale with a triumphant display of sight and sound, song and dance, woe and joy.”

contemporary and traditional music, as well as its ability to connect with audiences. The producer really has a
fantastic eye for finding the best young talent in Ireland”
Jeffrey Gabel, founding executive director of the Majestic Theater

Celtic Nights, with its rolling fog and dramatic images is at its heart, a really fun concert with classic songs
performed by Celtic superstars and major talents, who all seemed to be having a really good time. They
