Chris Hannon spent 13 years in the world-renowned ‘Lord of the Dance’ show before coming up with the idea for Murphy’s Legacy. He was joined by John Elliott, an international artist and musical composer, who set about composing an epic soundtrack.

Now, this performance features brand new musical compositions, world-class dance choreography and a professional cast of international dancers and musicians, and its starting its World Tour in the Gulf this month.

In Doha, these Irish jiggers are hitting the Grand Hyatt Doha for two shows on December 12.

It’s a dark yet inspiring tale of courageousness and loss. It gets you asking questions like: How far would you go to save the ones you love? What would you sacrifice in order to finally achieve peace? A spectacle of dance battles, a clash of colours and a poignant story with moody undertones.

It’s certainly not one to miss.

From QR200. December 12, 4.30pm and 8.30pm. Visit
