Note: My hubby and I have been invited to attend Amaluna in order to facilitate my review. ALL opinions are my own.
The last time the Cirque du Soleil was in Miami, my husband and I enjoyed TOTEM and LOVED it! I have been waiting for Cirque du Soleil to come back to Miami and now they are! Cirque du Soleil Returns to Miami with Amaluna.
Written and directed by Tony Award-winning director, Diane Paulus, Cirque du Soleil’s 33rd production Amaluna is a celebration of love and a tribute to the work and voice of women. Paulus drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show, including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Shakespeare’sThe Tempest. Women are at the center of the show, so it only seems right that it features a cast that comprises 70% women, with a 100% all-female band.
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.
Performances will be happening under the iconic blue and yellow Big Top at Sun Life Stadium December 11, 2014 through January 25, 2015.
