Cirque du Soleil combines stunning acrobatics, live music, surreal costumes, and a profusion of imagination for riveting spectacles such as Zarkana, a surrealist rock opera that lures guests into an otherworldly realm. The story follows Zark, a magician who has lost his powers of illusion, as he searches for his misplaced girlfriend and invisible car keys. Trapeze artists and acrobats fly through the air as he dodges a slithering snake-woman and a spider that traps human snacks in its giant web. Projections of cascading petals and flickering flames allow viewers to make hand shadows of rabbits during the show.
Helmed by Francois Girard, creator of the award-winning film The Red Violin and director of the Canadian Opera Company’s acclaimed production of Oedipus Rex, Zarkana fuses the magic of a concert with the artistry of a theater performance. As one of the largest theaters in the world, Radio City Music Hall provides a grand frame for the performance and enough room for post-show magic carpet races.
