Experience an amazing night of high-flying feats and stunning imagery from Cirque du Soleil. This magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, takes you to a mysterious island where goddesses walk the land and the rhythm of life is ruled by the cycles of the moon. The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men, caught up in a storm, become stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together. As the story unfolds, the dazzling arts of Cirque du Soleil illustrate the tale. The island world of Amaluna bursts to life with jugglers, aerial performers, dancers, unicyclists and much more.

I read and loved the play in High School, although 45 years later I do not remember much of it. It was still riveting, the acting was excellent, the staging was fun, a revolving set that rotated as they changed scenes and locations. I am tempted to reread the play and see if they were faithful to the original or adapted it. The themes of truth, greed, self-interest are all still very much alive today, and make the play relevant.
