Before the invention of the traveling circus, youths full of wanderlust would run off and join nomadic salesmen tribes and hitchhike on the corporate jets of vagabond CEOs. Take in some well-traveled talent with this GrouponLive deal for one G-Pass to see Cirque D'Or at the Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills on Saturday, June 23. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call. Choose from the following options:
- For $17, you get one ticket for seating in rows M–HH at 2 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. (up to a $36 value, including ticketing fees).
- For $29, you get one VIP package that includes one ticket for seating in rows A–L (up to a $36 value, including ticketing fees) and a post-show meet and greet with the cast (a $24 value; up to a $60 total value). This deal is only valid for the 2 p.m. performance.
Carrying on a tradition more than 25 centuries old, the self-stacking stunt artists of Cirque D'Or—known as the Golden Dragon Acrobats—have dazzled audiences in all 50 states throughout their nonstop 33-year U.S. tour. The New York Times has hailed them as "something special," for their catalogue of jaw-dropping acts, from contortionists losing themselves in geometric constructions of bodies to daredevils balancing atop precarious towers of chairs. An era-spanning soundtrack blending ancient and modern music drives the theatrical display, evoking the displays' venerable roots with techno-laced aplomb. VIP audiences can attend a post-show meet and greet with the performers to snap pics with favorite acrobats or kiss the legs of the chairs that had such wonderful balance.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
