It takes a lot to wow me nowadays. Sometimes it seems I have seen it all, and find myself unimpressed and sadly disappointed, in the theatrical world. That however is NEVER the case with a Cirque du Soleil show. I have been fortunate enough to see several different shows, in several different cities, and continue to be in awe of the outstanding performances.
Fortunately for me Cirque du Soliel will be in town for the holidays with their newest touring show, Amaluna. Coming to Sun Life Stadium starting December 11th and running through January 4, 2015, midweek day, evening and weekend shows are available to fit even the busiest of schedules.
What makes this even more special is Amaluna is a dedication to the women of the world. Be sure to grab some extra tickets for your mom, wife, sister, aunt, cousin and daughters to see this incredible show and celebrate the strength and power as women.
Cross off all those women on your holiday list (months in advance!!!) with tickets to this amazing acrobatic show guaranteed to empower them. Tickets are now on sale to the general public and every seat is an awesome choice. You can purchase your tickets online or by phone, 1-877 9 CIRQUE.
Cirque du Soleil’s continues to grow with this their now 33rd production. This isn’t the circus, it’s a craft of artists who turn a stage into a powerful and moving display of talent. The creativity and power behind a Cirque du Soleil show is unrivaled.
Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honors femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next.
In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men washes ashore the island, triggering an epic and emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test and the couple must face numerous demanding trials before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.
Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon”; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds.
