If William Shakespeare were to watch Cirque Du Soleil’s Amaluna, the English playwright and poet would be nodding and applauding in approval. It is, after all, inspired by his own play, “The Tempest,” and which Cirque Du Soleil gives its own enchanting treatment filled with dazzling lights, acrobatics, and circus. Hong Kong will surely be taken by storm as the world-famous circus comes to town.
Written and directed by Tony awardee Diane Paulus, the 2-hour show guarantees a magical night for the whole family as the female-majority ensemble dons colorful costumes, playing goddesses from the island of Amaluna. The enchantment builds up when Amaluna’s mother sorceress, Prospera, works up a storm that brings a ship of young sailors to the island. A love story then ensues between Prospera’s daughter, Miranda, and one of the sailors, Romeo—and in true epic fantasy-meets-Cirque Du Soleil style. The entire play is composed of spellbinding moments that leave the audience with mouths agape, nodding to the music, and cheering on the protagonists.
Latecomers can expect to be admitted only during intermission—and in a fashionable manner, of course. Click here for more information.
