Fantasy meets grand spectacle as Cirque du Soleil’s latest and most innovative production continues its run in Toronto. The show, Amaluna, combines incredible props, costumes, dancing and visual effects with an equally riveting storyline and soundtrack.
The premise of the show: It’s a feminine take on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. A group of men wash up on the shore of an island that is governed by goddesses and “guided by the cycles of the moon”. One of the stranded men and the daughter of Prospera, the island’s queen, begin to fall in love. Their relationship is tested by various trials and setbacks before they can live in harmony.
As is always the case with Cirque du Soleil productions, Amaluna has been a smash hit. Critics have praised the increased emphasis on storytelling, while lauding the troupe’s incredible choreography and athleticism. The public, meanwhile, has been enraptured by the scope of the production.
Amaluna is currently playing in Toronto under the Grand Chapiteau at Port Lands, and runs until November 4th.
