I would not recommend this version if you have not seen Riverdance before. Some of the scenes are ruined because of the almighty closeup. A good portion of the show is watching the dancers torso, not complete dancer, with feet moving. All you watch is their smiling face bobbing up and down. This version is also much slower then others I have seen; many slow songs and watching people playing musical instruments. I would only get this if you are collecting the different Riverdance shows. Buy Michael Flately's version if you are new to Riverdance. Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames great.

If you have followed RIVERDANCE seriously, this version will make you remember Moya Doherty's warning in A JOURNEY about crossing the line. What with the blinding entrance backlights, smoke machines, swaying hips, headset mics and the ugliest costumes this side of Vegas - the line is barely to be found in this tired, truncated incarnation.
You should own it, however, for the inspired performance of the splendid Breandan de Gallai and for the American tap dancers.

Each generation of Riverdance keeps getting better and better, the costumes lighting and production of this version of Riverdance are as good as it gets, my only (slight) complaint is the male lead (Breandan de Gallai) does not live up to the very high standards set by Colin Dunne and Michael Flatley. That said the music, Riverdance troupe, and female lead (Joanne Doyle) impressed me very much and kept the proud tradition alive

Finally got a DVD player, and was able to watch this show this morning. Was delighted, as usual. The lights glared a couple of times, yes, but they quickly "evened out". It was a toe tappin' good time. Trading Taps sent me into a fit of laughter at times, these guys are so good, as are all the dancers, musicians and vocalists.
The entire show followed the original one from Dublin, but had new footage included, as did the one "Live From NY". I enjoyed it immensely. (I just wish the fonts on the DVD case was bigger, so I could see who did what!)
Thank you to the producers for creating such a wonderful show.

I almost cried!!! Dec 25 2004
By Deirdre_I_S_E - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I own the one shot in Radio City and I love it, the kids that I baby-sit throw it in the vcr and dance away with it. It is an amazing show. I recently bought this version and it's atrocious!!! Everything is in red, the dancing is sloppy,the extra scenes are not worth having, and there's fog. This show used to be "classy" I guess you could say, and that was what set it apart from showier shows like the one (because they are all the same with a few added numbers and new costumes)Micheal Flatley runs. Like the other viewer said...Moya Dougherty said that there was a fine line that they couldn't cross, and it has definately been crossed. If you like Michael Flatley's show then you'll like this, maybe. If you liked the other Riverdance...save your money.

I liked Live Geneva Riverdance Nov. 6 2004
By Jack Frecker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I just bought this Riverdance, and also have the older version shot in Radio City Music Hall. I like this one better. It is longer, for starters; about two hours. It shows close-ups of the dancers feet, which I liked. I was wishing the girls were wearing something besides black tights and dark skirts against a dark background, so I could see their legs better. But, the dancing was very good. The orchestra, with an assortment of instruments, was quite appealing. The violinist dancing around while she was playing was nice, too.

In Michael Flatley's DVDs the costumes are much more colorful. I would have preferred more of that. Bright colors are nice. I never could understand the storyline, if there is one. It includes the Irish dancing, which is why I wanted to buy the DVD. But it includes black tap dancers, which you can see all the time on television. The story includes traveling to other countries, other shores. Why, I do not know. It seemed forced. I would have preferred more Irish dancing. If they needed variety, they could have included some Scottish Highland Flings, or sword dancers, instead.

I only buy DVDs that I intend to watch more than once. This certainly is one of them. I do plan to go back and back to it, watching it over and over.

A newer version July 24 2006
By K. Schnese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The first thing that I said to myself when I watched it was "What's wrong with the lighting?" Sometimes the dancers are completley in the dark! I really can't see how the lead female singer was put in the show, she has an ok voice but she doesn't blend with the others. I enjoyed watching Shivna and I liked the changes made to Ri Ra. I saw a version very similar to this, with a few costume changes, and it was amazing.
If this is your first time buying a Riverdance dvd I highly recommend The Best of Riverdance or Riverdance - The Show. Over all Riverdance is Riverdance, a show like no other no matter how many changes they make.
