Lila York debuted Celts at Boston Ballet – a year before Michael Flatley’s Riverdance became a sensation – and was hailed by the Boston Herald as “a riveting, imaginative marriage of ballet and Irish folk dance with a modern sensibility.” Set to the music of The Chieftains and more, this celebration of Irish culture has brought audiences to their feet with its choreographically intense jig and captivating energy.
