Many acrobats are known to burrow deep into the earth's crust in the winter months, using the molten core to keep their bodies warm and limber. Descend into the depths of the spectacle with today’s Groupon for Cirque du Soleil's Dralion at the Liacouras Center. Choose from the following show dates and times:
- For $42, you get one ticket to a 3:30 p.m. show on December 22 or December 23 (an $80 value).
- For $52, you get one ticket to a 7:30 p.m. show on December 21, 22, or 23 (a $99 value).
When Cirque du Soleil puts on a show, the audience can expect high-flying acrobatics, stunning makeup, and feats that defy physics, logic, and the Code of Hammurabi. Dralion is no exception to the rule, dazzling audiences with an innovative blend of traditional Chinese dragon and lion dances turned on their head, rolled into a ball, and then tossed high into the air, combining Chinese acrobatics with Cirque du Soleil’s signature showmanship flourish. The story of Dralion personifies and color-codes the four elemental forces that reign over the natural world: blue Air soars ethereally over her kingdom, while ochre Earth imbues the stage with her physicality and vitality. Vermillion Fire and green Water round out the harmonious quartet, while the tertiary elements of dingy brown Snow and purplish dryer lint watch enviously from their seats.
Located along the Avenue of the Arts, Temple University’s Liacouras Center provides ample stage space for this touring Vegas performance, ensuring connubial audience-dralion interspecies exchanges.
While Dralion is new to the area, it has already been featured in The Times of Trenton.
