Manitoba Post StaffArts

WINNIPEG – There’s a new show coming to the Big Top at Sterling Lyon and Kenaston. Cirque du Soleil’s, Amaluna will be opening on September 14, 2019 as a tribute to the work and voice of women.

The 43 performances will be performed by a cast mostly comprised of women for the first time in Cirque’s history. Tickets go on sale April 18 and can be purchased at

AMALUNA invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next. In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.
