CELEBRATING THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE THROUGH CIRQUE
Inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest and elements of Romeo and Juliet, Cirque du Soleil's Amaluna invites you to a mysterious island ruled by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon where the natural elements - particularly water - play a huge role in creating this unforgettable show.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Their god-queen, Prospera, is in the middle of directing her daughter Miranda's coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and 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 seek refuge on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera's daughter and a brave young suitor called Romeo. As the survivors explore their surroundings they encounter various mythical creatures, including Malaysian firebirds, peacock witches and fearsome Amazonian warrior women. All this is conveyed through a vast range of circus techniques and acts include waterbowls, juggling, aerial silks and Chinese climbing poles.
