Thrilling more than 8 million people worldwide since the show premiered in 1999, Dralion is the fusion of ancient Chinese circus traditions and the avant-garde style of Cirque du Soleil.
The name Dralion (pronounced “Drah-lee-on”) is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West.
Dralion derives much of its inspiration from Eastern philosophy with its perpetual quest for harmony between humankind and nature.
The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, gymnasts, musicians, singers and comedic characters.
Dralion, a signature Cirque du Soleil production, premiered in 1999 in Montreal, Canada.
After many years performing under the big top, Dralion is now being presented in arenas throughout the United States and Canada, with the same quality performance.
Fusing the 3,000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, man and nature are one, and balance is achieved.
Bearing the unmistakable signature of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion soars to new heights as it defies the laws of nature.
The show schedule is Oct.17 to 19 at 7:30 p.m; Saturday, Oct.20 at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 21, 1 and 5 p.m.
Tickets are $35 to $75 for adults, $28-$61 for children 12 and under; $31.50-$63 for military personnel, senior and students. A limited number of premium tickets are also available for all performances.
Tickets are available at cirquedusoleil.com/dralion or by calling 1-800-373-1700.
