"Mythology" is the latest show from Celtic Thunder and the show's 9th special for Public Television. Filmed on location at the Helix Theater in Dublin (where they filmed their debut show in 2007), it's fitting that Celtic Thunder have chosen to return to their roots in order to film this musical odyssey back to the heart of the Celt.
"Mythology" tells the story of our ancestors in Ireland, their legends, their history and their stories. It's the lifeblood of modern day Ireland and it's influences from our Celtic past that are that are still reflected in its people today. Like the Celts, "Mythology" is bold, challenging, strong, proud and steeped in history.
On the set of "Mythology" the old and the new combine, modern catalyst images are projected onto ancient standing stones, a giant Celtic cross takes center stage and the tempo of the music is strongly echoed in the theatrical and moody lighting.
All six Celtic Thunder principals feature prominently in "Mythology," from haunting solo numbers to rousing ensembles and great original tracks that were written especially for "Mythology," such as the show opening number "Voices" and the finale "My Land."
