Dralion is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has received international acclaim and astonished more than 8 million people worldwide since it premiered in Montreal in 1999. Dralion features an international cast of 50 performers, clowns, singers and musicians from 15 different countries.
The amazing 2-hour production features gravity-defying acrobatics which will wow and blow away audiences of all ages. Spectators will be at the edge of their seats when fearless aerialists bounce off trampolines using the wall as diving board and landing pad.
In the Crossed wheel act, the artist masters this unique acrobatic apparatus, turning, spinning and manoeuvring the wheel; while in the spectacular aerial hoop act, the aerialist is suspended high above the stage while performing some evocative choreography.
Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 100 million spectators in more than 300 cities in over forty countries on six continents.
We are running a competition for you to win a pair of tickets to the show on Wednesday 4th June 2014.
