Montreal based Cirque du Soleil is returning to Winnipeg with another one of their mind blowing shows. Dralion will have 8 shows from July 20 – 24, 2011 at MTS Centre.

[quote]Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.[endquote]

Tickets range from $87.00 – $107.50 and go on sale Monday, March 21. Remember, when purchase Cirque du Soleil tickets, front row is not always the best!
