I was provided tickets to facilitate this giveaway, but all opinions expressed here are my own!
Cirque du Soleil AMALUNA is now playing locally in Atlanta under the Grand Chapiteau at Atlantic Station! The show premiered last week and runs until November 30, 2014. This past weekend my husband and I got to check out AMALUNA on a much needed date night. The show was an amazing theatrical performance filled with drama, incredible acrobatic feats, and an overall envelope pushing production.
Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2014, Cirque du Soleil brings a new show to Atlanta! Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Amaluna’s Tony Award-winning Show Director, Diane Paulus, drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show; including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Now playing under the famed blue-and-yellow Big Top at Atlantic Station…with great seats as low as $35!
The show was entertaining, suspenseful, and even had quite a bit of humor!
Once the show concluded I got to stay behind to speak with some of the AMALUNA staff to find out some pretty cool facts about Cirque du Soleil and their newest show. Cirque du Soleil is celebrating it’s 30th Anniversary. AMALUNA happens to be their first show to really focus on the strength, beauty, and grace of women.
The stunning costumes in the show are made from different elements that protect the artists as they perform different acrobatic feats. Their are 982 pieces for all the costumes included in the show. 2000 costume pieces actually travel with them from city to city. In total, it’s about 40 hours of ironing, steaming, and replacing costumes plus 24 hours total of washing costumes. All of them are made in Montreal and shipped to where they need to be. Another awesome fact is that all of the artists are taught how to do their own makeup! Once they get the hang of it, it takes about 40 minutes from start to finish to apply.
All of the artists go through workshops and training to learn drama and other artistic elements, so once you see the show it’s perfection!
We thoroughly enjoyed the show and I want some of my readers to enjoy it too!
