Cirque du Soleil Adds AMALUNA Performances in Calgary to Meet Demand

Cirque du Soleil has announced additional performances (May 3 through May 12, 2013) to the Calgary engagement of Amaluna. Presented by the Desjardins Group, Amaluna opens Thursday, April 11, 2013 under the Blue-and Yellow Big Top at Stampede Park (Lot #6) for a limited engagement.

Tickets for the additional performances are available to the general public as of December 17 at www.cirquedusoleil.com/amaluna.

The Show
Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter's coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next.

In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men land on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera's daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.

Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to "mother" in many languages, and luna, which means "moon," a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where the story unfolds.
