Why See Cirque Du Soleil: Zarkana?

Cirque du Soleil invites you to Zarkana, a fantastically bizarre journey which premiered in New York City. This epic spectacle takes audiences into a fantastical and suspenseful world where highly-acrobatic feats are heightened by original live music and interactive multimedia elements. Zarkana transforms the grandest stage in the world into a world of unreality as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine.

Directed by the internationally acclaimed Francois Girard (The Red Violin, Silk), this new production features 71 international artists and follows Zark, a magician on a quest to find his lost powers. He finds himself plunged into a world inhabited by surreal and mesmerizing creatures. The music of Zarkana is composed by Nick Littlemore, a protege of Sir Elton John.
