I was lucky to attend a special performance of Cirque Du Soleil’s brilliant new show, Zarkana, at Radio Music Hall in Manhattan a few days ago. I’ve always loved Cirque and knew I was in for a treat. Seeing it in the city I live in and love, NYC, made it extra special, without a doubt.
After seeing a few clips, I can honestly agree with what CEO Daniel Lamar stated, “Zakara is Cirque Du Soleil on steroids.” It’s wild and grandiose at the same time. The performers push the boundaries of creativity and go beyond anywhere you can go in your own imagination.
Zarkana previews begin June 9, 2011 at Radio City Music Hall prior to the official opening on June 29, 2011. Tickets range from $55 to $275.
This epic spectacle takes audiences into a fantastical and suspenseful world where highly-acrobatic feats are heightened by original live music and interactive multimedia elements. Zarkana transforms the grandest stage in the world into a world of unreality as only Cirque du Soleilcould imagine.
Directed by the internationally acclaimed François Girard (The Red Violin, Silk), this new production features 71 international artists from 15 different countries and follows Zark, a magician on a quest to find his lost powers. He finds himself plunged into a world inhabited by surreal and mesmerizing creatures. The music of Zarkana is composed by Nick Littlemore, a protégé of Sir Elton John.
You can win a pair (2) of tickets to see Zarkara by Cirque Due Soleil right here on The Culture Mom (estimated value $110-$550).
