Cirque du Soleil Dralion to Wow Abbotsford

Cirque to Soleil is set to descend on the City of Abbotsford with a show that blends the beauty of both Eastern and Western acrobatics: Dralion.
cirquedusoleildralionThe show is a fusion of the best of both worlds as seen in its name, derived from the blend of “Dragon” which symbolizes the East and “Lion” for the west. It focuses on the Eastern philosophy of harmony between humans and nature, and representations of the elements become the main characters: Azala for air, Gaya for earth, Oceane for water, and Yao for fire.
Set to a variety of world music, the show includes elements such as the bamboo poles, aerial hoop, hoop diving, and more.
Originally a show under Cirque du Soleil’s Grand Chapiteau, it’s now been adapted for arena performances. Dralion will be at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre for seven shows June 2nd-5th, 2011.
Get your tickets and be awed by the acrobatic mastery that nobody does like Cirque du Soleil.

The first North American tour, which debuted in 2005, played to capacity crowds at almost every single performance. The show has gone into productions worldwide, including an abridged 30 minute performance at Universal Studios Japan.

The current North American tour debuted March 2009. Tickets are still available for many performances.
