‘Dralion’ is finally here, replete with added dates – Win Tickets

Due to exceptional demand Big Concerts has added additional weekend dates for ‘Cirque Du Soleil Dralion’ at the Grand Arena, GrandWest in Cape Town. The new dates are from Friday March 15 to Sunday March 17. Tickets are available from bigconcerts.co.za and Computicket.
Since its debut in 1999, ‘Dralion’ has wowed over 2.5 million people worldwide and is listed in Pollstar’s Top 25 tours of 2012.

“Since ‘Saltimbanco’ we have worked tirelessly to configure the seating plan for ‘Dralion’. We anticipate a much more intimate performance with fantastic views from each price bracket,” says Big Concerts’ Chief Operating Officer John Langford.

Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, ‘Dralion’ (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

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.
