Step OUT: For Cirque du Soleil's Dralion
French-Canadian circus troupe Cirque du Soleil returns to Baltimore Aug. 22-26 for a limited engagement of Dralion
at the First Mariner Arena
Acrobats, gymnasts, musicians, singers and comedic characters will perform for seven shows. More than 8 million Cirque du Soleil fans have seen Dralion
since it premiered in 1999. Dralion
made its Baltimore debut in April 2003, which was Cirque du Soleil’s first ever show in Charm City.
Since then, the show has been updated, says Cirque’s touring publicist Julie Desmarais.
She says Dralion
has a new contortionist act, stage, music and performers. It also added a new character, Kala, who represents time and the infinite cycle and takes the stage in a new apparatus called the crossed wheel.
Adult tickets cost $35 to $80, with discounts for students, seniors and military.
