If You See Only One Show This Year…

Cirque du Soleil (which means “circus of the sun” in French) is an acrobatic performance team like no other. They have a number of shows with different themes (Delerium, Love, Dralion, La Nouba, etc.), so even if you have seen them perform before, you will probably enjoy seeing them again. The original team was from Quebec, Canada, but now they have several teams performing all over the world.

The Tokyo team performs at “Shin Big Top” in Harajuku. Their latest show is called “Dralion” and it runs from February 7, 2007 to May 6, 2007. The ticket site is all in Japanese, so you may need help to make the reservations if you can’t read kanji.

I highly recommend going to a Cirque du Soleil performance at least once in your life. The tickets are quite expensive, but they are definitely worth it.

This site has some information in English about the Dralion theme and there is an article on the Alien Times website that gives the ticket prices.
