Cirque du Soleil: Amaluna

In this latest iteration of the popular contemporary circus, on a mysterious island ruled by goddesses, Queen Propsera directs her daughter's coming of age ceremony, honouring femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance, Queen Prospera then invokes a storm at sea. A group of young men wash up on the isle, triggering an epic love story between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. As usual the story is told through spectacular acrobatic circus arts, including aerial straps, teeter board, uneven bars, and the enchanting "waterbowl," with the lavish costumes and theatricality for which the company is known.
