TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Cirque du Soleil Raises Its Iconic Big Top in Preparation for the San Francisco Engagement of “Amaluna”
Nov 01, 2019
Cirque du Soleil returns to San Francisco as “Amaluna” invites audiences 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 honors 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.
A team of more than 60 men and women worked for several hours to pound pegs, unfurl the canvas, and, finally, hoist more than 100 supporting poles to raise the iconic Big Top at Oracle Park in preparation for the San Francisco engagement of “Amaluna.” Performances will take place under the Big Top at Oracle Park in San Francisco from Sunday, November 3, 2019 through Sunday, January 12, 2020.
