Take Flight with Cirque du Soleil Toruk

See an Avatar-inspired Cirque du Soleil


Do you remember how you felt when you first saw James Cameron’s epic movie, Avatar? Do you recall how magically beautiful and fantastically tragic yet inspiring it was? Now imagine that coming to life through the creative genius that is Cirque du Soleil. The acrobatic circus’ newest production, Toruk — The First Flight, gains inspiration from Avatar and takes the audience on a colorfully stunning journey to Pandora. It’s a family-friendly performance, but it’s also a short run — just five days — so if you want in, you need to act quickly. Get your tickets and prepare to have your mind blown.
