Great work.
I love the idea of an Encore, just bakes it a better show, even if there are the same # of songs.

Celtic Woman / Celtic Woman: Essence [new show idea]
« Last post by ShiningBright on Today at 11:58:32 AM »
Another show idea of mine, if you don't mind :)

For the first act, all wear lovely, light and bright green gowns. Mairéad's has off-the-shoulder sleeves/shashes, Megan's has long sleeves, Éabha's is sleeveles, but with floats from shoulders to wrists, Tara's has a sort of pinafore style (think Susan's yellow VoA dress) - all sleeves are semi-transparent and very sparkly. The dresses are generally very sparkly, with many stones and with wide, flowing fabrics. The dresses have a similar colour scheme and fabrics, but completely different styles/cuts. Méav's dress is a slightly darker, richer green, sleeveles, mermaid shaped, with golden and silver details.
The ceili dresses are very plain, white dresses with sweetheart necklines and no sleeves - ankle lenght for Tara, calf lenght for the others. Tara's dress has a silver sash/belt around the waist. Then for the rest of the intermission/early first act, the white skirts of the singers' dresses are changed to ankle lenght skirts in lavender/blue for Mairéad, soft yellow for Megan, and pale pink for Éabha, also with silver shashes/belts like Tara's. Tara's dress stays as it is. Then, they change into sparkly, beautiful gowns - all the same shape, but different colours. The skirts all keep the colours of the ceili dresses - but a lot brighter and richer shades. Tara's white has a slight silver shimmer. The tops are all very sparkly gold, and go down in a sort of star shaped style, with flowy, soft skirts that fall down fairly narrow, but swing extremely wide (due to the cut). Méav's dress is almost pure gold with various colours shimmering beneath it, with transparent sleeves and a wide skirt.

Inspired by Ancient Land and Believe - very Celtic, but also very lush. Beautiful, and detailed, but not over-the-top, with very nice, colourful, but elegant elements.

Musical style
True Celtic Woman - the perfect mix of Celtic, Classical, Contemporary, and Crossover. The arrangements are intricate, but not too heavy, and the styles of music overlap and interchance. The songs are arranged to suit the performers, and show off their ability. The tone is sweet and happy, at other times gentle and melancholy, never too poppy, but also never too blue. Like all Celtic Woman shows/albums it has its own sound, but if you'd want to compare it to older albums, it's more like A New Journey, or Emerald, or Ancient Land, compared to the others. If they have done the song before, the arrangement should be new. The intros of the opening and ceili songs are fairly short, even though I have put them seperately, and they don't really count as songs lenght wise - they can very well be merged as tracks with their counterparts. So does Be Still with Mo Ghile Mear.

Tara is playing her violin unless stated otherwise. Group means Mairéad, Éabha, Tara, and Megan. I mention Méav explicitly when she appears in a song.

Oy, that's difficult. Let me try!

1. The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun
2. The Call
3. The Last Rose of Summer/Walking in the Air
4. Carol of the Bells
5. Awakening
6. Mo Ghile Mear
7. Winter Wonderland
8. Ancient Land/Homeland
9. Terloc's Dream/When You Go

This is not in relation to how much or in what order I like the special, nor do I like the lower placed songs any less. I'm not even sure if I am actually happy with this list as I just made it, but it's pretty much okay.

Walking In the Air- Original
The Sky the Dawn & The Sun - ANJ
The Call- SFTH
Awakening- Believe
When You Go- Destiny
Mo Ghile Mear- Homecoming
Homeland- Ancient Land
Carol of The Bells- ACC
Winter Wonderland- HFC

Also if you wished another song was the opening number you can also put it along added so we can get a taste how if they went with it how would it effect the ranking.
Example - Follow Me- Ancient Land
This ranking is based on performance not on how many singers better looking dresses, best castle backdrop nope. 

#1 is Best
