Cirque Du Soleil THE LAND OF FANTASY Gets Grand Premiere In China
It is with great pride that Cirque du Soleil has today raised the curtain on its most recent permanent show in China: Cirque du Soleil The Land of Fantasy. Produced in partnership with the Chinese Group Hangzhou Xintiandi (XTD), this new production anchors Cirque du Soleil's unique offering in China and solidifies its position as a world leader in live entertainment.
Cirque du Soleil The Land of Fantasy offers an astonishing staging combining heart-pumping acrobatics, state-of-the-art visual and sound effects, and high-tech scenic and theatrical elements. The show pushes the boundaries of live entertainment with the innovative and exceptional structure of the Hangzhou Suntiandy Theater, a former warehouse custom-built by XTD and Cirque du Soleil. Divided in two sets of intimate revolving bleachers, the theater offers an unprecedented immersive experience to 1,500 spectators who benefit from a unique perspective of 360o on the massive 100-meters wide mainstage and the central structure consisted of nine panels of 121m2 each that shape-shift as the story unfolds.
Inspired by a rich storyline, multidimensional characters and surreal universes, Cirque du Soleil The Land of Fantasy tells the captivating quest of two ancient kingdoms torn apart centuries ago: two heroes, Petra and Aria, two perspectives, two sides of one history, two cultures discovering each other. No detail is spared to immerse deeper inside the story and create a surge of adventure for the whole family, each scene being more powerful than the previous one.
