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.

We took our grandkids aged 6. We all loved it. David Alan MIller started out with Tchaikofsky's Nutcracker, played a little Borodin, Mussorsky's Baba Yaga from Pictures at an ex[edition and then Stravinsky's teacher Rimsky Korsakov
Dance of the Tumblirs, my grandaughter pointed out shed just heard that at her mother's band recital.And then a beautifully done Puppet show with the terrific orchestra of the Firebird. done with Bunraku influenced puppetry. THere were lots of kids there aged around 5-7 and it lasted about an hour and a quarter. It was magical and beaautifl. Absoluately wonderful for all of us!
